Paying the paperboy

With all of Flint's problems, it's good to know the mayor — who happens to be an ex-con — is busy having a 61-year-old "paperboy" unjustly arrested when he doesn't like The Flint Journal's coverage. This time the mayor's goof cost the city $150,000.


  1. Ex-Con Don declared the Urinal "UNAUTHORIZED READING MATERIAL" hahahaahaha, no joke. That was the term he used.

    Picture hizzoner with an enormous rubber stamp imprinted with the red circle with the diagonal crossbar thingy furiously labeling stacks of Urinals, Uncommon Senses, and Wooden Nickels with his anti-free speech declaration.

  2. Probably the best thing that ever happened to the "paperboy"..


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
