Default Ruston, Louisiana?

So what's the skinny on the town and surrounding location? Should I be running scared, loving the idea or anything in between?

Doing a quick google, the town website certainly makes it sound quaint, but not much rental market? Certainly cheaper location, but what's to do and all that?

Probably a moot point for many reasons, but it's an avenue I'm looking at, not favourably job wise but there you have it...

I thought working wife was against the law down there

Anyway, not much of an economy, nor education, so yeah, sounds like a winner to me...
