    You just can't make this stuff up...

    Not only is the city just about bankrupt, the politicians that the people of Detroit have been electing to government are corrupt. The difference between Detroit and Chicago is that even though the city is corrupt, they can still make it work.

    It is so bad in Detroit that even people on the left won't defend it.

    Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” - Gamalie the Pharisee - Addressing the Sanhedrin regarding the new group called Christians
