Bad journalism's greatest lists
It seems Forbes Magazine just can't stop creating disparaging lists that include Flint. They've already placed the city on the list of America's Most Miserable Cities, now Flint's on the list of America's Fastest-Dying Cities. Shockingly, there's a lot of overlap between the two lists.
Is this garbage computer generated, or is some hapless intern from Syracuse University churning it out? (Um, I'm talking about the lists, not Flint Expatriates.) And how about a list of the cities with the most affordable housing? Or the best Vernors floats?
But don't despair. Flint can take pride in not being on the list of The 60 Worst Cities to Live In.
