Seems like we have an entire genre of commentary about the dilemmas of 
rural America! Enough to
fill a few books, or a syllabus or two. (Which makes we ask - is this a 
taboo subject for academia?
I do not recall seeing many sociological/psychological/economic studies 
in the last decade? Or do
I need to be reminded?)

Highly recommend also this recent Counterpunch article.
