Small town life

The streets are not busy.
There are few choices for shopping or dining out.
There are more farms than movie theaters.
You can drive your horse and buggy to the store.
You can stand in the middle of the road and take pictures, not worrying about getting run over.
Yes. This is small town life.
Though, my grandma tells me it's no longer possible to go to the store and expect to meet someone you know; it used to be guaranteed.
...but it's also likely she just doesn't get out much.

Grand Rapids--not a small town, in fact it's Michigan's second largest city--recently made a music video.
I heard it was made in reaction to Newsweek calling it a dying city. The city-folk wanted to prove otherwise.
And now the youtube link claims the video holds the world record for the largest lip dub.
This is what is cool in a small town.
