Thank you, Gang of 124...
Sorry for my "public" absence. I closed off my blog to all except 124 invited and vetted guests. We called ourselves the Gang of 125. For the past several months we have been gathering comments and discussions as well as info from public documents that will be put into a book in the near future, along with a new collection of mostly "ghost-town type photos. I want to thank my administrators who did a wonderful job, especially those who helped verify and clear up some misconceptions that many had. I may be living in Georgia but I am still in the loop when it comes to Maryland. Even those who live in other states were helpful in many ways, whether they were past residents or visitors.
Naturally, I have removed the comments from the past several months. You can't sell a book when the info can be had for free. But profit was not my reason for deciding to gather records and people's thoughts and concerns about small-town living. Moving to a new city, especially a small one needs careful thought and research. The book will inclucde some useful tips from people with experience.
