Please vote and post any comments you think are appropriate. I'll go first. Imagine a gym that once sparkled and is now slowly going into a state of disrepair. It is getting soiled at a faster rate than it is getting cleaned, where the staff is just going through the motions, while members seldom if ever return the weights to their proper place after use. Picture if you will a once vibrant city that its residents took pride in and that is now slowly being boarded up, one building at a time. Where its inhabitants can dispose of refuse in the middle of the street and those policing the streets just lazily look on, occasionally shaking a finger at the offender. Think of Tim Burton's Gotham City in his 1989 Batman movie. Is this where ET is headed?
