Historical Perspective Thought for the Weekend.

As we relax this weekend and get ready for the 4th of July, I feel a little time travel thought experiment might be fun.

In a thousand years, will San Angelo be a healthy community with a continuous historic connection back through today to Ft. Concho, etc. or will it be just another archeological site being studied for why it failed to survive and thrive?


  1. If our mind set continues, unfettered growth, San Angelo will have dried up, turned to dust and blown away - won't even be an archeological site left to explore.

    1. A long view is a bit of a challenge. How do you get a community to deal effectively with problems like roads and water and critical infrastructure, etc. when the governing body has an attention span governed by a 2 year election cycle. One key factor is we need to stop confusing the government with the community. City Hall is not the City.
