Rural USA longs for broadband - for USA TODAY

Three weeks ago I did an assignment for the USA Today for their article "Rural USA longs for broadband". I spent the morning with third-generation peanut farmer Jeff Roper of Plains, Texas. I spent the afternoon in neighboring Morton, Texas documenting the town and specifically focusing on the library that offers free wi-fi. Check out the usatoday link and watch the audio slideshow they produced from the photos and audio I collected. Below are some photos from the two locations.
