The opening of a new water park is always good news — unless it takes place in Detroit, America’s most liberal city, from which a certain politically incorrect ethnicity has been almost entirely purged.
The city of Detroit was hoping to make a big splash with the grand opening of a new splash park. … They served up free ice cold bottled water and delicious grilled hot dogs. The T-shirts looked good reading “Palmer Park Splash Park” and the ribbon cutting went well. Just one little glitch at the new park, there was no water! A water main break dried up the splash park for its grand opening!
“We had a mishap with a water main that broke,” explained Detroit Mayor Dave Bing. “We have a water system that’s 100 years old so those things happen.”
It isn’t easy to keep the infrastructure up to date when the city government is basically a looting spree that has gone on since the 1970s.
Where did Detroit get the money for a water park in the first place?
The new state of the art splash park became a reality with a generous donation from the Lear Corporation. A city filing for bankruptcy gets a lift from Lear, a concerned corporate citizen.
A futile gesture, but it’s the thought that counts.
