Description and Details:
A comical short story set in the late 1800's that follows a group of men who think they have all the answers while the town around them is falling apart.
This is a short story for a collection of stories I am writing with a friend. The collection is called Ripping on Rip.
I would like to know how the story comes across overall. Also wondering if the ending is satisfactory, sudden, or just doesn't work. I was originally planning on going darker with the ending, but took it back to keep it light hearted. I'd like to know if that is the right move.
