Ghost town blues

It's like a horror movie.

One where you walk outside your house in the morning, and realize as you drive your kids to school that there are no cars on the roads.  No people in the grocery, or at gas stations...

The town is empty.   There's a whooosh of debris blown up by the wind as you drive by.  No neighbors are answering their doors.

Natural disaster, or some errant virus slaying the masses?

I'm sticking around, watching, waiting...

I don't think the cavalry will sweep in and rescue us, or anything like that. 

It's just that I'm not big on change.  I'm really bad at it,  even considering the amount of changing and shuffling the family decks as I do all day.

I'm scrolling down, and ignoring the match.com, NASCAR, and Bank of America ads.

And stocking up on canned goods and water.

I'm with you.
I think everyone leaving JLand just hurts us - the readers and writers - more than it will ever effect AOL.
I'm sticking around, even though I'm pretty upset.

I've been telling everyone, if they really want to hurt AOL. They need to dump them and get another (cheaper) ISP. Then come back to AOL as an AIM user and keep on journaling! I used to be an AOLer and then I did just that. I don't see any difference in being a paid customer and am AIM user.

So I think this is what everyone should do. I like AOL because of the closeness of the community. You just won't find it like this on any of the other blog sites.
