mostly, I try to mind my business at least a little. but, detroit is planning to get rid of some of its opulent ruins (as well as some places that AREN'T RUINS... they're actual normal residences) to build farms.
wait just one second... this city that has let go to ruin more than most cities ever dream of having, has redefined the concept of urban sprawl, and has suffered boom and bust has decided to go into FARMING?
why? have they not noticed there are plenty of other places to farm? as in BETTER places to farm yet those farms still fail?
it can't be for jobs because ever since whitney invented the cotton gin farming jobs have been on the decline. also, probably during the greatest period of "farm employment" most of the "employees" were less than happy about their position... because they were either slaves or "indentured servants" (also slaves).
they say some of the houses they want to tear down will cause a lot of "unhappiness" because the families have owned them "two or three generations." now, I don't know if these houses are nice or not, but isn't there a better way to "help" these people?
(sigh) and seriously. does ANYONE want food grown in detroit? sorry, but yuck. their greatest boom period was during the "just pour it out" phase of industrial waste disposal. i'm just saying...
