Albany used to be pretty much blue collar and farm folks (sensible).  now it's getting more urban and having the usual problems that come with city folks.  they pack up the Birkenstocks and granola bars for a move to the country.  then they complain about the critters, tractors, smells, etc......  that's why i don't go up on the mountain to pull them out of holes anymore.  in fact, i encourage hiking!!!!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
