Frankly, some of the people on this forum are happy to talk in circles on and on, but they will never admit the truth. They are afraid of minorities. They are afraid of poor people. They regard any effort at regionalism as communism. They just want to live in 1962 forever and ever, and will never acknowledge any of the basic simple facts that keep this region in the shitter. Frankly, for all their complaining about Detroit, they are absolutely satisfied to live next to a place they call a shithole, not to mention some of the choicer words they use when there are no melaninistic folks around ...

There's no changing your minds, for all your attempts at appearing open-minded. What a shame all wisdom must die with you...

I am disappointed they canceled the puppetry workshop.

Haha. Oh, you obviously know everything already. No reason to actually engage anybody you disagree with. Sit back and hurl your complaints. It is so sad that all wisdom must die with you.

Ah, yes, sir. What a pity all wisdom must die with you ...


It must be awesome to be so cool.

Luckily, that's what this forum is about. Sharing stories and helping people's opinions evolve. Maybe instead of calling a poster effed up or accusing a poster of making baseless accusations, why don't you describe what a harmonious world exists north of the straits, where all people, black, white, Finn and French, live in mutual love and admiration?


As long as they share your opinion or their opinions evolve into something you said, right?

If anyone knows Greek, it would be great to have the header say that in Greek. Of course, then DetroitNerd wouldn't get it.

It's actually a quote from the Bible:
No doubt but ye are the people, and wisdom shall die with you.

White guilt, as I said.

I must say, I don't see a lot of that in Detroit. But what do I know? I was only born here. I only live here, work here, play here, day in, day out. Maybe, from where you live, you have a better view of the city I live in. All I can say is what I see, which is that most of the people who work for the city, black or white, have dealt with me fairly. Certainly, I have been treated much better by blacks in Detroit than blacks were ever treated by the white power structure back in the old days. So that's pretty cool. Maybe you hang out with heavily Africanized black people who are organizing to stick it to the white man. I haven't met them. Sorry.


Translation : I've never hung out anywhere outside the Corridor, Downtown or Hamtramck in 20 years.

I, too, had a bad experience at Mario's. Long wait times, dishes were undercooked, bill was wrong. It might have just been a total disaster that night ... who knows?

I don't think I'll go back to Honest John's after the last experience. Waitress was cute ... and rock-stupid.


Weeping for wisdom again, I see. At least I won't have to worry about this DB coming in anymore. I haven't seen him in over a year, anyways. Hopefully he was avoiding my shift.

But I don't want to rag on restaurants too much. It's a tough business, and even when a place opens with a winning formula, they can be victims of their own success. And if they aren't, then the temptation to cut corners is often too great, and they can fall down in service or quality. And, frankly, some customers are assholes and make it their business to rag on restaurants where they feel they didn't get everything they wanted. ("Two-hour wait? I'm Mitch Fucking Albom!")

Funny, I've never had a problem with my shots being too small at H?Js. Drinking too much, yes...putting up with the dickface bartender, yes...putting up with every random douchebag that walks in the door, yes but never shots that are too small.

In other words, "I liked it before because it made me feel cool. Now that it's popular I don't feel cool any more so I'm on the the next cool thing. Yes, emotionally I'm still in High School and trying to impress my friends (and girls) by finding the next cool band before you do."

Shit, I dare say many of us don't go there any more. It being popular isn't the problem. Nor is it moving onto the next cool thing. It's the Quality/Price/Time triangle, it still hits the mark fine enough on the first two items, but factor in that third one, and, well, we've got better things to do. Kid's hockey/soccer/drums, teaching/bartending/camping, biking/baby making/test driving, surfing/SUP'ing/California-dinner-partying, hermiting/reclusing/misanthroping, etc.
