And an interesting, well informed, well educated poster who believes that baseball and “tow roads” are the key to saving Detroit:

IF TIGERS STADIUM WAS SOLD OUT THEN WHY IS DETROIT BANKRUPT? (Detroit)

I AM CONFUSED: IF A BASEBALL PLAYER MAKES $100 000 PER GAME EVEN IF THEY LOOSE THEN HOW COME DETROIT IS BANKRUPT? CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME PLEASE HOW MUCH DO FIREMEN OR POLICEMEN OR MILITARY GUYS MAKE PER YEAR? DO THEY CATCH A BALL OR THEY RISK THEIR LIFE? THIS IS BULLSHIT! IF I WAS MAKING $100 000 PER GAME MY CITY WOULD NEVER BE BANKRUPT! HERE IS MY STORY: I WENT TO THE GAME THE STADIUM WAS ALMOST FULL 50 000 SEATS SOLD OUT. IF AVERAGE TICKET IS $30 THEN WHY CITY OF DETROIT IS BANKRUPT? HOW CAN A BASEBALL PLAYER MAKE A $100 000 PER GAME EVEN IF THEY LOOSE? NO WONDER WHY USA IS IN $ 17 TRILLION IN DEBT. HOW CAN A BASEBALL PLAYER MAKE $100 000 PER GAME IF HE JUST THROWS A BALL? WTF IS HAPPENING IN THIS COUNTRY? BASEBALL PLAYER MAKES $100 000 PER GAME AND THE CITY IS BANKRUPT? TAKE MICHIGAN AVENUE THE ONE THAT GOES TO CHICAGO WHY NOT FIX THOSE ROADS ? LOOK AT THE OLD TRAIN STATION : DOESNT THAT BUILDING MAKES YOU DEPRESSED? WHO GAVE PERMISSION TO PAY $100 000 PER GAME TO A PLAYER WHO JUST THROWS A BALL , HE DIDNT DISCOVER CURE FOR CANCER, HE DIDNT LIFT ANYTHING HEAVY, HE DIDNT RESCUE A CHILD IN A BURNING BUILDING, ETC. WHAT KIND OF SYSTEM IS THIS? IF TIGERS STADIUM LOCATED IN THE CITY OF DETROIT THEN MONEY FROM TICKETS SALE SHOULD GO TO THE CITY OF DETROIT TOO. STADIUM HAS 50 000 SEATS APPROX. ASAP DIVIDE THE PROFIT FROM SOLD TICKETS . PROFIT FROM TICKET SALE MUST GO TO FIX ROADS IN DETROIT AKA CREATE JOBS, FIX OLD BOAT HOUSE, FIX OLD FACTORIES, TURN THEM INTO APARTMENT BUILDINGS FOR RENT. THE STADIUM HAS GATES THERE IS A SIGN 420 NEXT TO DTE , DETROIT IS A MOTOR CITY, ASAP ADD MOTOR CITY LOGO FOR GM, FORD, CHRYSLER ADS IN THAT EMPTY SPOT. DONT KEEP GATE WALLS EMPTY, START ADVERTISING AND MAKE MONEY FOR THE CITY OF DETROIT! TO ALL TIGERS BASEBALL PLAYERS: HOW DO YOU SLEEP AT NITE? YOU GUYS MAKE SO MUCH MONEY AND YOU PLAY IN A BANKRUPT CITY? SHAME ON YOU ! GO BUY SOME COMPUTERS FOR KIDS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS!
SHAME!
SPORTS IS USA IS OUT OF CONTROL!”

and then in another post:

2 ENTER CHICAGO I HAD 2 PAY 4 TOLL ROADS WHY 2 ENTER DETROIT IS FREE?” (DETROIT)

IS DETROIT A COMMUNIST CITY? WHY I HAD TO PAY MONEY TO ENTER CHICAGO WHEN I WAS TRAVELING FROM DETROIT? BUT WHEN I WAS TRAVELING FROM CHICAGO BACK TO DETROIT IT WAS FREE! WHY DETROIT DOESNT LOVE MONEY? WHY NOT MAKE PEOPLE COMING FROM CHICAGO PAY TOLL ROADS FEES AND USE THESE MONEY TO FIX ROADS? WHY DETROIT IS SO NICE? LETS FIX ROADS AND CREATE JOBS! WHY DETROIT HAS SO MANY ABANDONED BUILDINGS? WHY NOT FIX THEM AND START RENTING THEM TO PEOPLE WITH LOW INCOME? SOME HOUSES CANT BE  FIXED, IT WILL COSTS TOO MUCH, WHY NOT REMOVE THEM AND PLANT VEGETABLES AND CREATE JOBS? SOME PEOPLE ARE LAZY , JUST WATCH TV AND GET FAT! WHATS WRONG WITH MAKING FRESH SALAD FROM UR GARDEN?

1) ASAP START COLLECTING TOW FEES AND START FIXING ROADS IN DETROIT CITY!

2) ASAP RENT ALL ABANDONED FACTORIES TURN THEM INTO APARTMENT BUILDINGS

3) ASAP REMOVE ALL OLD HOUSES THAT CANT BE FIXED AND PLANT VEGGIES, STOP EATING BURGERS AND GETTING FAT AND DIE FROM HEART ATTACK!”

Now I for one don’t know what a “tow road” is but they sound awesome! We should elect this individual Mayor of Detroit!

What are your thoughts? I would love to hear your comments 🙂
