Today, in browsing around the interwebs, I came across a great... but simple... request from Reddit user "Stale_LaCroix" asking...

"Keep Billings ______"

It's an interesting thought. And, that was all there is to the post. But, it's a valid one. And when someone tells ME to fill in that blank, this is what I say...

"Keep Billings Magical"

For me, Billings was the city I looked to as a small town Eastern Montana kid... with the "big city Montana" dreams. A small dream, yes, but one that was achieveable... as, back then in the 90s... I think Billings WAS a more desired city to live in. These days? I wouldn't say that is the feeling.

Though, I will say, I still do consider Billings my "home" here in Montana. Yes, that means Miles City has fallen from grace in my eyes... and is indeed no longer "home".

What Do Others Say?

After a few days to sit and stew, plenty of comments have arrived. Here are a few of my favorites:

They had more to say, but that isn't PG-friendly. Something about Downtown being not so great.

So we're going with Alive.

After the crime we've seen this last year or so, yeah, that one is a good one too.
