Laughed out loud at this. For some twisted reason I have always considered Butte to be the unfortunate offspring of a brother and sister town. My apologies to anyone who lives there and might be Butte hurt by that unflattering portrayal.The nice thing about butte is that it is already so F’d up the locals think it’s a feature.
spot on. trying to see MT through the lens of the hustle and bustle of the coasts and feeling like there is plenty of room for all to come is ridiculous. God created some places for lots of people, and others were created for lots of elk and deer. SC was created for lots of people, MT was created for less than a million people and more that 200,000 elkwhat we locals repeatedly see are people who aren’t local that are so blinded by the beauty they can’t grasp the reality of what is unfolding. It’s irritating to be told how good you have it by people who don’t have a clue what a healthy landscape actually looks like in this region and don’t understand what the problems are.
I think the forces that caused people to flock to the big cities will resurface. Apart from the current homebuilding surge, what real job growth is there in Montana? People will return to the big cities to seek employment when the economy tanks like it always does.
Not DC...I hate politics. I'm moving to Bozeman. I'm adding another body count to bozeangeles. I kid, I kid.That was quick. You belong in DC…
