For years, I had my trusty Dale Kildee for Congress yardstick. In my most recent move, it got left behind.
Still no re-start by Dan on a Phil-Hart-esque beard.
Dan should just go whole hog eccentric mega-beardo. He has that seat locked down however long he wants it. James Traficant got away with the wig and sideburns combo for decades. If Youngstown let him represent them with that Flint would surely let Dan-o go au natural. A full-on "Gorton's Fish Sticks" would look damn good, plus it'd take the term "urban farming" to a whole new level....that, or he should just start wearing Traficant's rug...
Dan should grow a "Barnett Jones"
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.
