Response to PoindexterOglethorpe (Reply #38)

Fri Mar 3, 2017, 05:04 AM

43. I haven't been there for YEARS.

I would point out some tolerable eats & things but who the hey knows what's there now. I can recommend a visit to the MONA art museum downtown at the site of the old post office. The building is one of the few lovely historical places not destroyed in a misguided attempt to project the image of a modern town.

Kearney is a tiny, dusty, windy little place that smells like the wrong end of a cow a great deal of the time. If you note the stink, someone will tell you, "smells like money! ha ha ha."

Most of the people are nice enough, but I could not tolerate the conformity, the lack of imagination, the pervasive, sterile, corporate franchise cookie-cutter-culture.

The charm is not entirely disingenuous, but it is decidedly thin and superficial. We could never go back.
