Flint Pride in a Bathroom Stall
Flintoids are making their presence felt in San Francisco. Because this is a family publication, I had to pass on the photographic evidence, but you can see it here. This ode to the glories of Flint was found in the bathroom of The Latin American Club in the Mission District. And, no, I am not the author.

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.

Happy Mother's Day Mother Young, we wouldn't have this Great Blog site without your contribution of it's author. I'm sure you are just as proud of the other siblings of Gordon too. With or without restroom graffiti in San Francisco. My daughter lives there and each day she sends a "Picture of The Day" from the sidewalks, walls and other locales around her area. I'm not trying to detract from your day with this sad note of information, but we lost a another great athlete from Central high this past week- Lynn Chandnois. He was a friend of my brother. He set some pro football records that still stand today. I personally think that the era you attended Central was the glory days of that school. unclebuckReplyDelete
