While this is sad for anyone stuck living in (former?) Motor City, what really strikes me about the article is its semi-ridiculous indignant tone, especially in its central quote, where a Public Health Official says:
No one's on the street saying 'Gee whiz, what do you think about this?'You know why no one is on the street saying that, Dr. Maseru? Because even in Pleasantville they'd kick your ass for saying "Gee whiz, what do you think about this?" Also, the DPH contradicts itself at the end of the article when another official says it's a good thing for people to be talking about it.
