Portrait of Civic Parkers, Past and Present

If you've had a chance to read Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City, you know how glad I was to catch up with P-Nut and get a tour of his Civic Park home this weekend. He's really making progress on the place. It gives you hope for the future of Flint.

  1. Good to see you again, if only for a short time. Got the pastor's big mower fixed today.


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
