More death knells for small towns on America. I’m not a millennial – in fact I’m one of the last of the Baby Boomers – but I fled my small town just a bit.  Somewhat of a compromise – 20 miles from where I grew up (population then about 500 now abound 250) – to Lansing (population 11,000) and I work 35 miles away in KC metro (not sure of population stats for the area but probably over two million easy). I love access to culture activities but I miss dark skies.
