We wandered off the highway to Laurel, Mississippi, just to see what a small town looked like. Driving through the downtown, we found this sign:

“Historic Downtown Laurel” was one of the most desolate and depressing places I have ever been. There were signs of people living there, but no signs of life. And the only places to shop or eat were those featured highway signs. Where have all the mom and pop shops gone?
