49 Square Miles Surrounded on All Sides By Reality

I've lived in San Francisco just about as long as I lived in Flint, but there are still times when I'm left wondering what sort of fantasy land, divorced from the reality of countless cities and towns across the county, that I've landed in. Today was one of those days. While Flint confronts its very existence, San Francisco contemplates the psyche of local dogs.

Multi-tasking, San Francisco style.

A real live unicorn! Sort of.

I want to see more of this on Saginaw Street.

Not exactly sure, but I believe this dog is talking on an iPhone.

When people ride tricycles built for seven, you know the economy is booming.

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
