Is it just me or does that headline sound so appropriate? We all know Detroit was ready to implode. Imploding is much better then exploding because outsiders don't suffer the cluster flop as much. Next thing FM radio will hold a contest to decide the best things to pitch into the sink hole. We need a bigger hole and it's almost ready.

The city is collapsing in on itself? How poetic is this euphemism in relation to the city as a whole? This is just too something the writers of South park should run with and have a good time.

If anyone reading this has ever worked downtown before, you know what I'm saying here. This is just so dead-on.

Right on.......when I first saw the 'sinkhole' caption I figured they were preparing a place for KK. A grate atop the opening at street level would allow citizens to 'greet' KK in the manner they deem suitable!

Just saying....
