Please don't give Flint auto dealers any ideas

A Missouri used car dealership has an innovative promotion, offering buyers either a $250 gas card or a $250 check toward the purchase of a gun, according to a story in The New York Times.

So what do most customers choose? Come on, this is America.

Mark Muller, the owner, said everyone “except one guy from Canada and one old guy" picked the gun.

Thanks for commenting. 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 www.teardownbook.com.
