In another post the conversation started drifting toward the never ending discussion of "progress". I am curious how you define it and your opinion on the pros and cons of progress.
Here is what American Woman had to say in the other blog.
"When I was young my family lived in Murfreesboro for a while and visited it quite often. Since then it has grown tremendousely with lots of variety of things to do. Huge amount of places to eat out, atleast 2 movie theaters that I know of, the mall, YMCA & bowling alley just to mention a few. There once was a skating rink in Murfreesboro as well as here. But now...there is NOTHING here except for a movie theater. Shelbyville has grown very little and is being left behind. My family goes to Murfreesboro at least once a week to shop and eat out...we only shop here for day to day needs. It is my true belief that there are people in this town that have kept new business from coming to this town because if it did these mom & pop home owned businesses would loose money. And until THIS changes Shelbyville will NEVER have anything for the younger crowd to enjoy and many of the adults as well. This town is at a stand still and has been for many years. We needs more than just a movie theater for entertainment. I might not have gave any suggestions on what we need for our younger crowd but you have to start somewhere.
