A Community Is Its Institutions

This is fascinating for any number of reasons, but especially: "The town has all the characteristics of a contemporary American community."

The detail about "La estrella del norte" is very nice, too. Would be more brutally poetic if instead of a smelter, it were an incinerator.

And finally: just why did the government overbid by 60%? Is that an efficient use of our tax dollars?
