Detroit water park opens for business…minus the water.
“We have a water system that’s 100 years old so those things happen.”
A paraphrase of a famous quote leapt to mind. Just substitute for the word “philosophy”:
“The society which scorns excellence in plumbing as a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in government because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good government: neither its pipes nor its services will hold water.”
Well, people drown in water, so…
And Detroit is drowning in debt! It almost seems to make sense…if we assume that people don’t.
Make sense, that is. Rare people make sense. The others make Detroits.
Is there an equivalent Euro city to our splendiferous ruin?
Hmmm… I’m not exactly sure, so I can only speak for Vienna. Right now Vienna has a debt of over 4 billion Euro.
When I was a kid that was the deficit of the entire country.
so . . . what did the kids do at this waterless water park? scrape themselves up tumbling down the slides, and break their bones jumping into the deep section? or just sit around bored until fainting from heat exhaustion?
