    Very Nice but you didn't build that.

    There are mills like this one in NH and Maine. However they are mostly dark and empty. Northeast paper making has moved on.

    this is largely true in our region, also -- for instance, I grew up in the town of Everett, and when I was a kid there were 5 pulp/paper mills in town -- two Weyerhauser, Scott, Simpson-Lee and one other that I can't remember.

    last year, they began demolition on the Scott Paper mill, the last of the five to fall.

    not sure what keeps this mill going.

    I use $100 bills. I am the 1%. The poor have their grass and leaves.

    Electronic medium has replaced a lot of paper in the past few 20 years.

    e-books, e-mail, e-bill pay etc.

    We have companies where I work that charge us extra $$$ if we want them to send us paper copies of documents instead of PDF files.

    Does this mean we will be wiping our a$$es with kindles and ipads soon?
