Hamilton Avenue Bridge

Okay, I'm clearly obsessed with these idyllic images of the Flint River that don't look like the Flint River I remember. Here's an undated postcard of the Hamilton Avenue Bridge I drove across on my way to St. Mary's for school. And trust me, it did not look like this good in the seventies.

I also had to put something up so Dick Cheney would no longer be the lead post. I think he was driving away readers.

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
