Flint Artifacts: Laser Hits

Special thanks to Kathryn (Hendrickson) Murchie for this Flint Artifact


  1. The Planetarium was a nice idea, but it made people nauseous and would give you a killer kink in your neck.

    The paving over of the fountain was the second WORST thing the Cult. Center people (mostly suburbanites I bet) have done, the destruction of Manning Ct. being the most egregious.

    The new FIA is ABSOLUTELY amazing, but just think about how much better it would be with the fountain and a few studios/artist-in-residence/offices on Manning Ct.

    So it goes in Flint, one step forward two steps back.

  2. Too wild. I actually worked at the Planetarium part time as an usher/technician while I was in high school in 1979. It was pretty nice back then.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
