By Robert Paul Reyes

"A group known as the Detroit Mower Gang is inviting volunteers to join them for a 24-hour event to mow grass at the city`s abandoned playgrounds."

I applaud the Detroit Mower Gang for their good intentions, but they remind me of rearranging chairs on the deck of the Titanic.

It`s a titanic job to save Detroit, you would need several gangs to have even a prayer of turning things around.

You would need a Demolition Gang to bulldoze the thousands of abandoned and decrepit private homes and buildings, a Vigilante Army to rid the streets of  human vermin, and a Construction Crew to repair the thousands of broken street lights, street signs, potholes and other infrastructure.

Billions of state and federal dollars have already been poured down the sinkhole that is Detroit. Enough already, let the bankrupt city remain in ruins as a testament to the folly that pouring money into a problem will fix things.
