#1 President Pugh is right! We must save the Studebaker at all costs.

#2 The Soviet Union ( remember them?) had a novel and interesting idea about what Human nature really is. Then they fell in, collapsed and disintegrated. Now Detroit is pursuing an economic model which which is equally wise and misinformed concerning Human nature. You reap what you sow. ( what IS that smell?)
Does anyone feel sorry for Detroit ?

Now the State of California ( hey, Dude. Power to the People, dude. Occupy Wallstreet, dude.) smells like they are next. You voted for him. I didn 't. Maybe you can get a free iPhone and a bigger helping of Foodstamps.
See you in Church, muthah.

You know what a single round of 9mm ACP costs? Mine is $1.10 per. You? Looks like I may go have to go back to reloading my old brass with wad cutters.

#3 The American West is littered with hundreds of old ghost towns which long ago past their reason for existence. No one mourns their passing or offers to 'rebuild'. Here is Karakorum once capital of the largest human empire ever founded. Sic transit gloria mundi.

#4 ..and the now classical comparison, 65 years after Hiroshima. Corruption, shear and absolute consequences of corruption.

#5 First we started with a ghost city, then next a ghost state (California, Illinois and New York in the running) and then finally the first ghost country, unless you count Atlantis.

#6 Atlantis would sink the Immigrant ships with crystal-power I think before letting them in. They were a racist bunch of people according to Plato.

#7 Well they will just have to sell the city to OCP so they can begin construction on Delta City.
