A historian is tracing the life of some dude who blew this joint (not in the substance abuse sense) and got totally rich and powerful in the 1800s.
We leave and we get rich. We never get rich and stay, or get rich and come back, or get rich and do something epic for those less fortunate stuck here in, oh, I don't know, the poverty or Welfare cycles.
And yes, that means if I ever get rich someone around here is going to benefit.
