Cairo, Illinois is mostly abandoned.
It was once a thriving city of 15,000, but the Mississippi barges don't stop there anymore, and racial turmoil,
including a three-year boycott of white-owned businesses
that refused to hire black workers, killed the town's economy. The Cairo Project
, from Southern Illinois University, is a good overview of Cairo's history and its current situation.
Can punk label Plan-it-X
start a rebirth by moving to Cairo
and opening a coffeeshop
? If it helps, there's still good barbecue
