BUTTE, MONTANA





Butte is beat.  Battered, baked and butt-kicked. 

Either Anaconda's copper ran out or the townsfolk got ripped off by the copper barons.


They could learn a thing or two from the people of Jerome, Arizona.  Like, how to revive an old copper mining town.  Maybe with ghosts, maybe something else. Build a myth, they will come.



Currently, Butte is symptomatic of everything that's wrong with America, and humanity in general, which, in this city, seems like a tumor bent on killing Mother Nature.

Couldn't, wouldn't  stay in Butte.  Had to roll 20 miles west to the Fairmont Resort...
