A commenter asks:
Iâ€™ve visited several times, and I really like your city. Iâ€™m a Liberal person, and I know of the range war, sort of, between the Greens and the logger/ranchers. I saw signs on fences that were belligerent. I saw the mining economy dominate the school impact. I saw the two biker dealers and the bar culture.
What surprised me was the hints of cliques, rumors, WTF? The guy in the record store (this was early 90s) wouldnâ€™t tell me what radio station I could tune into while I was in town. He was actually evasive, and I questioned THAT, and he said he didnâ€™t know me from around town.
Coincidentally, I met a couple from SC out in CA, and they said they had been banished from the main bar there!
Is there an estrangement upon the town? Is there a large and integrated division amongst you?
I’m leaving for El Paso to pick up a friend at the airport, so I’ll put the question to readers: are Silver Citians divisive? Respond in comments.
