    detroit assistance lines boil over.

    But; you knew this was coming: [peep][hissyfit][smsh][smsh][wannamesswitme]

    Detroit -- Thousands of people swarmed Cobo Hall in chaos this morning trying to get applications for housing and utility payment assistance from the city of Detroit.
    People fainted, others fought as the Detroit Police Gang Unit tried to keep people in line --- some since last night --- and in check.

    "It's a disaster here," former assistant Detroit Police chief and city council candidate Gary Brown said, handing out water. "This is dangerous. Very unorganized, very dangerous."
    The City of Detroit Planning & Development Department was to pass out 5,000 applications to those standing in line. But a line of people snaking back and forth inside Cobo, down Washington Boulevard and around the corner to the circular parking deck far outnumbered the applications available.

    I kept reading about "asking Cobo for help" and was wondering "Why are they looking at the Church of Buffett Orthodox for help??????"


    And yes it is real...or it was before it was hacked to death a few years ago...

    For those of you who know of the Church of Buffett, Orthodox, here is its creed for which we all should follow. 1. Jimmy Buffett is revered as chief poet, insofar as he has best espoused a philosophy of cheerful hedonism.
    2. The albums of Buffett constitute the Church's holy writ, with the following exceptions:
    a. A1A, White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean, Havana Daydreamin', and Livin' and Dyin' in 3/4 Time constitute the "spiritual core" of our holy canon.
    b. Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes is the most troubling part of scripture; some advocates believe it belongs in (a), while I believe that, since it contains the apostasy of "Margaritaville," it does not belong with those other enlightened works....

    and on and on...

    ok...Back to Detroit.....
