"I was planning on retiring in October, but now I'm not sure. I have a lot of questions," said Herbert Jenkins, 50, who has spent the last quarter century working for the city and repairing its potholes."
This is a fitting epithet for the city of Detroit. When filling pot holes for 25 years entitles one to retire at age 50, God help us.

I heard that ~40% of the street lights don’t work in Detroit. I wonder what the % of unfilled potholes turns out to be....Then I’ll come back to his guy and his ‘problems’.
I’m sure, too, he wasn’t crying when the City was upping the Union $$, so the unions could funnel some if it back (no doubt), while the taxpayer had NO say in the matter.
