North Dakota Boomtown – With Every Blessing…..

Saturday in Buzzy’s Country Store I met a lady visiting here from western North Dakota.  When I asked if she was oil rich she demurred a little but did say that she owned 1200 or so acres that were being drilled for oil.   She discussed the activity in that part of North Dakota and how everyone was busy either drilling for oil or supporting the efforts to do so.  You can imagine.  (Click here for story.)

I wanted to pry a little more and ask the lady about the “business” aspects of this boom, you know, the strip joints, hookers and gambling etc. but because she was there with her family and grand kids, I had to keep the conversation PG.   Turns out however, that there is a proposed reality show called Boomtown Girls that sort of deals with these issues.
