The concept of stress-free, small town living is cylical. Small towns grow because people move there for a slower lifestyle. The lifestyle changes as the towns grow. Call it the Wal-Mart intrusion effect. How many traditional commercial downtown areas in small towns have become art districts because the Wal-mart 10 miles past the last exit has crushed the competition?
I will take telecomuting every day in a big city so my daughter doesn't have to go to day care after school.


That's good news for small towns! In my town, we don't have Starbucks. We have to get our espresso at one of three locally owned coffee shops. Also, our mall is not that great, no good stores really, but our boutiques are great. And in the summers, we have great concerts in the park - usually by local artists.
