Im sure the major factors involved have a lot to do with the types of industry that were located in these cities and had propped these towns up
economically for years. Since the auto industry and other manufacturing indistries have faltered and most production worke has been annexed to other
countries, the folks in these towns really haven't had a real base of employment from which to work.
Factor in higher cost of living and rising crime and you have no doubt that people are fleeing and moving on to greener pastures elsewhere.
I have noticed here in N.C. a huge and overwhelming abundance of northerners and midwestereners moving here by the truck load. They are everywhere,
and there doesnt seem to by any halt to the great yankee pilgimage in sight. This can be a good or bad thing depending on who you ask. My only fear is
that they will bring the same crime, high cost living and misfortune with them and before long these southern cities will soon be uninhabitable as
Just my opinion obviously.
*Also...Speaker I just wanted to add that it is nice to see you back and posting on a regular basis again.....welcome
