« Fast rail a fact, not an option | Main | What does counterclockwise mean? »


David J. Reilly


I was at Office Depot the other day and I go there occasionally (Hey, It's a Baby Boomer Thing) to nose around and see whats new in technology. The man that was there asked if I was finding everything? I said yes a whole lot more, so much stuff I was just trying to keep up. He said there was so much he worked there and didn't try anymore. I told him I was afraid not to keep up. I probably won't even be able to be buried without a pin number.

Suzanne, great question. For small communities, the key is to have a station on a train-rail line. Then people in town can get anywhere. Not being on a rail line likely to mean the small town will decline. If you're on a rail line, you don't have to move into the big city if you don't want to.


What will happen to people who live in smaller communities? I live in Bangor Township, MI. We have a Bay City address. Around here, the "townships" are considered "the burbs," but they all border right up to Bay City. In suburban Detroit, it is common to drive over an hour to work. That would be laughable here. If you drive more than 15 minutes, it's a lot.

Anyway, I am about 5 miles from Downtown. Should I be considering a move into "the city"?
