Detroit

I know most of you could care less about Detroit, but I just felt the need to share this article.

Not much shocks me these days, but this article really blew me away. I dont know what to say about it - it would be comical if it wasnt a tragedy.

Given that this is the state that previously elected Jennifer Granholm, John Conyers, Kwame Kilpatrick, etc, I can't say I'm surprised. It is quite sad though. At least it serves as a lesson to other urban population centers, not that I'd expect them to listen.

Telling it like it is FTW. I'll gladly be exiting this state within the next week. Good riddance (except for Ann Arbor :-D ).

This is exactly the kind of bigotry Dr. King gave his life to eliminate. The fact that it wears a different face doesn't change the message. How sad. :-/

It's also funny you don't read about this kind of stuff in the MSM. Imagine if it was the other way around...... O:-)
