Seriously, I’m going to need someone to tell me why this can’t work.
You get some capital together, and you go buy some bulldozers, a wrecking ball, a couple of backloaders (I went on some auction sites…I’m stunned how cheap some of that heavy equipment can be), find yourself a demolitions expert…and then you open up a destruction company.
But you’re not the one doing the destruction.
No, it’s people like me doing the destruction. Or you. Or anyone.
I read stories like this one – http://www.freep.com/article/20120415/NEWS01/304150016/For-many-kids-in-Detroit-school-zones-are-danger-zones – about how many abandoned, dangerous buildings there are near schools, and there’s a problem.
And then I realize that there are a lot of people with a lot of pent up stress and frustration. And I see an opportunity…
Look, I’m not saying that Mayor Bing is totally using our idea…
…oh, wait, that’s exactly what I’m saying.
Remember that idea we put out there about how to deal with abandoned buildings in Detroit?
So, funny news story broke today…
