@Max --- good blog -- I live in a small town about an hour out of a major metro area -- working in the metro area and living in this small town are like night and day.    The single largest provider for people in the area is the government -- There are many senior citizens on fixed incomes, as well as a large population of disabled people(many vehicle accident victims left in power scooters, or electric wheel chairs finding there way down narrow streets with crumbling sidewalks (My elderly mother even ran over one in her car, and got her license revoked) -- The printed newspaper is still thriving, many still depend on a land-line phone, and few have money for gadgets or much electronics beyond a phone and tv.
