democrats and dying cities
Folks get a mite touchy when someone declares their hometown dead. So when Newsweek earlier this year ranked this Hoosier town in its top 10 list of dying American cities, the mayor huffed and puffed about the criteria and complained that the magazine relied on preliminary census estimates for its conclusion.
When the actual census figures came out a few weeks later, it turned out that the population drop was even more severe than the estimates.
