is that a police chopper looming in the background?
I'm pretty sure that was a UFO.
Forget the UFO, who's the dork with the silly grin holding up the sign? (Just kiddin!...the look on your face was priceless though what exactly were you thinking of?)
It took me a while to figure out where I'd seen that look before.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:40-Year-OldVirginMoviePoster.jpg
Finally, someone comments on the ridiculousness of my picture! I look like a dim-witted tourist who wandered out of Union Square and somehow ended up on Flint Street. My thought bubble: "Why is it foggy? Why is it 40 degrees in May in California? Why is the wind blowing 30 m.p.h.?"
I didn't notice at first, but it does look like you've carried that sign with you... is this your new way of getting donations for the blog? Or are you on strike and picketing on some unsuspecting corner? ;)
Here's an idea...http://www.vagabondjourney.com/journalism/walk-across-america/Just use the Flint sign instead.
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.
