To the editor:

A de-industrialized Ohio is reeling after a 1.7-mile-long train accident caused by lack of maintenance, Civil War-era air brakes, and only three people on board. With over 100,000 opioid deaths last year, the Midwest is a shadow of what it used to be.

Add to all of the numbing of minds and stupefaction of the upcoming generation by means of "technology" through social media and the gargantuan push to legalize cannabis, and you'd almost think it's by design.

But I'm cynical by nature anyway.

Good luck trying to find decent healthcare, or for that matter basic needs like food and shelter 20 years from now.
