Population plummeting, Detroit to turn off half of streetlights to save money. Last one out of Detroit, please get the rest of ’em.

  1. At least in LA you can sleep on the street without freezing to death and getting eaten by bears. Detroit is the tragic combination of Unions, Liberals and Hard freezes. If you are going to build a liberal dystopian Utopia, you should at least do it below the frost line.

    Someday after all the unions and liberals abandon Detroit we can turn it into a nice winery or something.

  2. That is just Detroit’s way of celebrating 50 consecutive years of having a Mayor from the Democratic Party.

  3. I was going to suggest we go “Escape From New York” with Detroit and convert it into a crumbling, savage wasteland primarily inhabited by criminals. But that would be redundant.

  4. Leave the city standing and let’s turn it into a real, live – and life-threatening – game with armed participants:

    “The City of DOOM!”

    …complete with monsters we get to shoot with BFG’s. I’ll bring my double barrel.

    Why are we letting them out?

  6. So now the city’s streets are as dim as its elected officials and its prospects for improvement.

  7. All they have to do is to tax the rich…anyone making over $250,000 a year!
    What?
    How about $200,000?
    Oooookaaaay, let’s go for $100,000.
    Huh! $50,000?
    Are you $#!tting me?
    $10,000?

  8. Why’d they nickname Detroit, Motor City? Cars have engines, vacuum cleaners have motors.
    Kiss called it Detroit Rock City, seems more correct. Lively as a rock.

  9. Apparently one can get a house in downtown Detroit for about $600 even. So this is what 40+ years of democratic minority leadership looks like, eh?
