Good (time of day you’re reading this), and welcome to Top 10 Flashback, the weekly feature that just won’t go away.
This week we will venture a mere 60 miles north of my hometown to the one city that, per capita, is more dangerous than Detroit. Yes, I’m talking about Flint, MI, former GM manufacturing hub and hometown of Michael Moore. This once-proud city is now a complete fucking wasteland – Moore did get it right with “Roger & Me,” and it’s only gotten worse since that film was made nearly 25 years ago. At least Detroit has some places people might actually want to go, but nobody ever says “Hey, let’s go hang out in Flint.” Unless they want to get shot or something.
