I have noticed that a lot of building storefronts on Woodward have been painted white the past few weeks. This weekend, i saw the people painting the ceiling of the building next to the new flower shop on Woodward and asked them what the deal was. They told me the city hired them to "paint for the final four". If the city has access to all these buildings, why has this not been done sooner for the general well being and appearance of the city??? Do we really need a Superbowl or Final 4 tournament for them to clean up? uggh...

It's damned disturbing to see a new thread, titled "Paint the town white," and find that it has been initiated by a poster named Hood.
Fortunately, I see that there are no eye-holes, flames, or horseback-riding involved.

In a word, yes.

when you say you took your name from a Phish song, you don't need to say that you're white.

Yes yes, Jesus CHRIST it was just a jest, as was Zimm's remark, sorry I started this dust-up.
Now CLASS, can we all return our attention to the original theme statement?

Yeah, Cheddar, I think I fucked up, and no matter how many dykes I finger, I will not be able to forestall the oncoming rush of foolishness.
Sorry, Hood.

Hood, did ya happen to notice if they were painting the whole structure this time? The thing with the superbowl and all the houses with purty facias and decaying backsides (like a movie set) was sadly amusing..

Sad how an innocent inquiry can evolve into this sort of off topic crap. Just answer the darn question and quit with the racial and sexual stuff!

They're painting the town WHITE??? Verrry suspicious. Frankly it sounds like a racist plot. Have Reeves or Conyers weighed in on this yet?

Isn't it just codespeak for the "basic whites" to continue to take away from the black culture of Detroit?


There are waaayyy too many uptight people on this forum. They are so tight that when they take a piss it whistles!

I would like to believe that only on DetroitYes! could a deliberately twisted metaphor, featuring a deliberately mis-spelled word, leave such a lastingly befuddled impression.
