Sorry night for Flint

This stupid, stupid town has deprived itself of grace once again.

For all of us who've hung on here year after year hoping for a break from corruption and vulgarity, and who've wondered if we dared to dream that our city could find a path to something new and fresh, tonight is a damn depressing night.

I'm going to bed.

A moron in the White House. A moron in city hall. The death spiral continues on both fronts.

I'm past being bitter. It all just seems so hopeless anymore.

Yeah, I know, Bitter Guy. I feel the same way. Saw a Walling supporter pulling up yard signs on the way to work. He said they're devastated but "trying to keep things in perspective." Who were those 600 people?
Of course, it's a larger issue, as you suggest, than one election. Our collective IQ, municipally and nationally, seems to be plunging.
