This article and its accompanying photographs are what Yahoo calls “BEST OF 2014”. I’m wondering why Liberals (and trust me, Yahoo’s home page, which many people use, is totally liberal) would ever call this the best of anything? Odd.
Also, here is a bit from the linked article: “How did this happen and how do we stop it from continuing to happen?” It’s not just Detroit, either, he says: “This is a question cities across the nation should be thinking about. Detroit today is your town tomorrow, as our former mayor Coleman Young said.”
Can any of you point to parts of your town that are in the utter disrepair and degradation of so much of Detroit’s residential neighborhoods? I’d like to know if “cities across the nation” are anywhere near this ruination. And what were the politics of Detroit mayors for the last few years? Oh, yes, I remember… there hasn’t been a Republican mayor elected since 1957.
Let’s talk about this. Do parts of your town look that bad? It’d be nice if we could ring all of that out with the old year, wouldn’t it.
