"Bodie" and the metaphor of resources and suburbia---the entire US transportation grid we've built here since the era following World War I. Bodie, the town, ran out the very mineral resource that made it boom. That it collapsed...was completely de-populated by the 1950's, even prior. Not much left there save for toxic mining tailings and falling down building shells. 

Visions for US suburbia. "1001 Uses For a Dead KFC outlet". How limitless were those horizons. Limitless consumption. Everyday low prices. Trinkets on a limitless vista.
