my name up in lights

Picher in NE OK

I just came across an article in Wired Sept 2010 about a hard-luck mining town in northeastern OK.  7000 acres of mine tailings, poison ponds, abandoned houses, hold outs clinging to "normal" life in a few homes.  ...interesting stuff, thought it was worth a share.  If you put Picher, OK into YouTube or Google you can get lots more... stay safe wherever you go.
