unhappy little tree

put some lipstick on that pig

Stephen Schudlich is the Director of Exhibitions for Work • Detroit, A&D's exhibition space in the 313.

i am currently pondering further proof that detroit may be the worst city of all time:  civic leaders decided to plant evergreen (christmas-esque) trees along the sidewalk on jefferson east of the boulevard. these will grow to encrouch the sidewalk thus "legitimizing" the obsession for local folk to shun society accepted walkways and walk/scoot in the street. they will also provide optimum staging areas for surprise assaults. at least until they are cut down leaving nice stumps. evergreens also have a wonderful knack of "collecting garbage, a tax paid service that  the city itself can't seem to provide adequately.  i bet some of these end up in peoples' homes come the holidays. one step forward, two steps back. believe it.
