head west



This photo was taken on the first day that the commuter train transported passengers from the tiny village of La Fox to Chicago, a distance of 50 miles.

The indians of this area were displaced by the arrival of settlers heading west. And now the rural farmers, descendants of those early settlers are going to be displaced by the latest wave..... an urban population pushing ever further west.

Is it right, is it wrong? Hard to tell in the wake of local history.

At this point, it just is......

What's that pile of white stuff on the ground in this photo? (Today nearly 60 degrees in Kansas City.)
