    Been a lot of this Main St. vs Wallstreet stuff going on.

    Having only visted NYC I know little about Wall St. other than it's where the stock market is, and it's the font of Capitalism to some and Big corp evul.

    Having lived in a town with a Main St. (Old HWY 45, became Main St at the edge or town and a 1 1/2mile later was Old HWY 45 again) I know what 'is'.

    But, what does it mean?

    To me it's family, freinds, neighbors living and working together. We know when someone gets sick, or goes off to school, buys a bit-a-land to farm, on and on.

    Never heard of the term "Keeping up with the Joneses", until I left my small home town.

    So what does Main St and Wall St mean to you?

    And what do you mean by Main St vs. Wall St? Aint no city folk commin 'round here kickin nobodies ass! :lol:

    Main Street is where the hookers, homeless and druggies congregate.
