Would you rather live in Pottersville?

Do you watch "It's A Wonderful Life" every year? Here's an interesting article examining the darkness of the film and how the alternate reality Pottersville looks like more fun than Bedford Falls. Beyond that, the town might be in better economic shape today if it had kept the gambling instead of the manufacturing jobs. Hmmm, something to ponder. Mr. WYA! always says that Pottersville looks like more fun but Mrs. WYA! thinks it looks a little trashy and sad. Also, is it depressing that George never made it out of Bedford Falls or would all of that roaming have felt empty to him? Do we really know what will make us happy or do we just need to pay attention to the events of our life to realize when we feel enriched and recognize the value of life's lessons along the way?
