Jogged down here from my hotel digs by the big GM factory in the city of Pontiac. Friday night, first week of June - the week of GM's bankruptcy. Notice the closed-up store behind and the nearly empty parking lot.
But this fellow sure isn't giving up. From Midwesterner's practical mindset and (relatively) work-together approach, I think they'll figure something out. However, it's hard to see anything like the economy Southern Michigan has known persisting very far into the future.
Word is Pontiac got some movie making business going. There is so much lawn here. How will they maintain all these lawns with the economy going where it is?
