Elevator Goes Down For The Last Time

My last hometown grain elevator was demolished last year. I’d hoped that something would save it for all-time, but that’s not the norm in rural Saskatchewan. “Bigger is better” as elevators turned into terminals four or five towns over. Bigger may be better, but I’ve also heard that the bigger things are, the harder they fall. Also things can become too Big to fail (or rather too big for us to bear their failures).
