Miserable from a third party standpoint. We mostly don't feel it, like the lobster in the pot. We just feel hot. We have not lost consciousness yet, We're still clawing the lip of the pot and looking at the ceiling. Wait. I'm losing my grip. I slipped to the bottom. It's really hot down there. OK, we're good now. Have a drink.

The near suburbs are badly infected. Other suburbs are at risk and some have pockets of infestation.

I met a guy not too long from up Michigan. A real nice guy, an mechanical engineer. I asked him whether it was true what I'd heard about Detroit.

And he said, no, not at all, none of that's true, Detroit's a fine, fine place to live and bring up a family.

And I asked him did he live there.

And he said, "No. I live in Novi outside Detroit."

I dont' think people from other areas really think of the suburbs of Detroit as Detroit.

Maybe. There's fewer of them as they are killing themselves off.

Been a long time since I have been in that area. What I remember of Detorit is most of the inner city looking like it was a war zone. Some of the suburbs were nice, but Flint was more just like an extention of Detroit itself.
