Small Town WilliamSherman

I'm not sure if there is more to do here or if you just get to hear everything that's going on but there's nothing sleepy about small towns. And sure it takes you 45 minutes to buy a loaf of bread because you have to chat to everyone, and you get embroiled in the minutiae of the lives of others no matter how much you resist the dark side of alluring gossip, but at least you're getting in the game.
