Actually nothing really thickens, just a sign that shit might hit the fan. How bad can it get? As bad as Detroit? Well, looks like Detroit is about to get way worse.

The struggling U.S. city of Detroit is on track to run out of money in May instead of April after spending changes made by city officials, Michigan Treasurer Andy Dillon said on Tuesday.

Dillon addressed media following a two-and-a-half-hour meeting with a team that is looking at Detroit's financial picture and trying to assess whether the city needs an emergency manager to take over operations. It was the first time the 10-member team met since it was appointed last month.

He said Detroit's most urgent issue is figuring out how to arrest escalating retiree health care costs, and clean up a balance sheet laden in debt and interest costs. Detroit Mayor Dave Bing had earlier predicted it would run out of money in April if spending wasn't curbed.


Detroit, with a population of 714,000, has faced hard times as the contraction of the auto industry has led to a dwindling population and lower revenues. More than 36 percent of the Motor City's residents live below the poverty line, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Dillon's team will meet with Bing administration officials, members of the city council and labor unions in coming weeks. Dillon said that although this is a financial review, it's also a review of the "quality of life."


Yikes. Happy I don't live in Detroit, or anywhere near for that matter.

There's also something else that thickens.

Nothing really thickens... the run-out date was pushed back.

Oh well. I live pretty close to Detroit most of the time and the area around is fine, but the city itself is such shit

Penis?

No, I was talking about my vagina, can't vaginas thicken as well?

Racist.

they should just set up cameras all over Detroit and give us a Mad Max reality show

Hmmmm, I'd be in for that. Yep, now you're talking.

Actually, more of a escape from new york theme, would be better, but in Detroit.

I just have to pull some binoculars out

Assuming everyone's down by the river that is... but I guess they would need somewhere to dump the bodies.

Detroit is such a shitty town.

It's like the love child of Gotham City from Batman and Baltimore.

This, except with less ravens and rich people, and with more empty buildings.

You know a city is a bad place when you can use its name as a punchline.
