Thumbs up Detroit

On a flight getting ready to depart for Detroit ...Jack was sitting on the plane when a guy took the seat beside him. The guy was an emotional wreck, pale, hands shaking, moaning in fear. "What's the
matter?" Jack asked.
"I've been transferred to Detroit , there's crazy people there. They've
got lots of shootings, gangs, race riots, drugs, poor public schools, and
the highest crime rate."
Jack replied, "I've lived in Detroit all my life. It's not as bad as the
media says. Find a nice home, go to work, mind your own business, enroll
your kids in a nice private school. It's as safe a place as anywhere in the
world."
The guy relaxed and stopped shaking and said, "Oh, thank you. I've been
worried to death. But if you live there and say it's OK, I'll take your word
for it. What do you do for a living?"

"Me?" said Jack.


"I'm a tail gunner on a Budweiser truck."

Yep Grew up about 25 miles northeast of Detroit. Worked as a medic for a city that bordered Detroit in the early 80's. Refused to go in without a police escort, and that was during the day. It really hasn't changed much. Thanks for the laugh.
