I'd think they'll be dead from enlarged hearts brought on by energy drink consumption or lung failure due to vaping long before Alzheimer's gets a chance to set in.

Along those lines, young people would do themselves a very big favor by realizing there's little to be gained from dumping most of their checks into rent just to be downtown. And I'm not just talking about Detroit. What we're going to pay for a house one hour from Chicago breaks down to about three to four mortgage payments per one month of rent at a downtown Chicago high rise ... and many of the new ones going up are being marketed to the 35-ish and under crowd.

I also realize this will never happen.

Translation: Suburban Avenger bought a home in Chicago's "Grand Blanc." Welcome to the dark side, SA. The local legion hall beckons.

Ha! If only there was a legion hall here in the Big V ... they probably couldn't find any room for one, what with all the fucking Lutheran churches on every block.

The best analogy I've heard for my new digs is that northwest Indiana is Chicago's New Jersey (playing the part of Newark, it's Gary!) while southeastern Wisconsin is Chicago's Connecticut.

Can you steal the Jesus action figure next to the register on the bar for me? I always wanted a Jesus action figure......


They got rid of that.

Proud, mighty proud to say I attended this fine event, just so that at least one cockpuncher was in attendance. I walked out without taking one of the swag Kessler shirts.

910 AM radio host Ralph Godbee quits on air


http://www.detroitnews.com/story/entert ... /91620666/

...host a TV talk show based on relationships...


Meaning adulterous relationships with subordinates that end careers?

Godbee said he plans to now focus on serving as senior pastor of the Inner Court Christian Center.


Cross to HFD Scoundrels, Hustlers and Thieves.
...with 45 personalities — including former Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers, Christine Beatty, former chief of staff to Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, and Karen Dumas, former spokeswoman for Detroit Mayor Dave Bing...


That's a rogue's gallery if there ever was one.

Ax fell at work on Wednesday and yours truly's head was on the chopping block. Might not be such a bad thing, though. I have a marketable skill, and after just a couple days already have some leads to explore...........the uncertainty sucks, but, hopefully we'll come out on the good side in a short while
