Oh my.

It’s obvious that this kind of thing has hurt our civic pride.  It has also been one of this medium’s serial concerns.  But it should also be noted that the top drawer mergers which drained my dear town of our corporate sovereignty and our ability to be a place where shots are called in the major American business world happened long after Reagan left the White House.

The more fundamental underlying problem with my dear town remaining a shot-caller berg happened long before Reagan came to the White House, in fact, before he was even born.  It was when railroads supplanted rivers as the prime commercial corridors.  Once that happened, then all this was a matter of inevitability and time.
