HBO’S ‘Our Towns’ Tells How Americans Save America

Moundsville Blog’s John W. Miller says quotes James Fallows in the ‘Our Towns’ documentary, “My view of American history is that the country’s always been in trouble. “Wherever we go, people have a certain kind of stubbornness. Even when things are dark, they’re imaging a better future.”
