Tondar's Daily Rant

Prepare yourself for the writings of Tondar the Destroyer, Baron of Atlanta, Rightful Heir to the Throne of Spain, from whom all babies come. As his will be blogged, so let it be done.

We all know about the urban destruction of Detroit. Like the old Talking Heads song, Nothing But Flowers, there seems to be a post-apocalyptic feel to the city...

We caught a rattlesnake
Now we got something for dinner
we got it, we got it

Man is a clever animal and the population will adapt as the urban wasteland decays. In fact, the southern transplants there have gone back to their roots, and taken to huntin' coon...

"Starvation is cheap," he says as he prepares an afternoon lunch of barbecue coon and red pop at his west side home."

I'm not sure what the opposite of tasty would be. But as Detroit becomes more rural and the flowers, fields, and critters take over, it only makes sense that the remaining pioneers would adapt to their new surroundings.

If the city wants to revitalize itself, it should take "Nothing But Flowers" and use it as a campaign to attract hippies to their new post-urban paradise. Like Mellencamp's Chevy ad, just pay no attention to the lyrics...

If this is paradise
I wish I had a lawnmower
you've got it, you've got it
