Flint Photos: Journalists at Play

Beata Mostafavi and Kristen Longley of The Flint Journal test out the hula hoops at the corner of Saginaw and 2nd on a sunny day.


  1. You know, suddenly when I am home in Flint- there are all these people hula-hooping. And I don't mean your generic school-yard hooping...I mean, grown adults, fancy hoops, intricate moves. It's actually pretty fun to watch.

    Too much gyration for GR, apparently.

  2. These two young women can actually write. The rest of the staff ranges from adequate to pitiful.


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
