Betty sent me this outstanding video about the demise of the town of Picher, Oklahoma. Picher is 1/4 mile off Route 66 east of Afton. I've written about it several other times on this blog because I'm somewhat obsessed by the sad story of this town which died not because of the opening of the interstate like so many Route 66 towns, but instead as the result of irresponsible lead and zinc mining in the area. Please watch it. Thanks.
