The City Council also rejected a proposed contract to overhaul the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department, proposing to cut 81 percent of its workforce in an attempt to save cash.

The Water and Sewage dept. has to be run...regardless of the financial position the city is in...

If you can cut over 80 percent of the employees and still run the dept...that tells me a LARGE percentage of those jobs are patronage or political jobs...probably half actually never show up...and get a paycheck..

Eventually something like Cholera is going to sweep cities like Detroit. As the looters suck the last of the life out of the host, all civilized order is going to collapse and places like Detroit are going to resemble Somalia.
