(Not Really Wordless) Wednesday
A few weeks ago we went to Flint, Michigan. The crime rate there is consistently ranked very high in the state. We'd never been but had to go (my husband had a commitment to keep for a school project). The city was nice and quiet and we enjoyed our visit.
A few days ago we went to Ann Arbor. The city is consistently ranked very high on nice places to be in Michigan. We've visited a good number of times and never had a problem. This time, however, there were unmentionables on a main sidewalk, graffiti everywhere, and more than half a dozen police vehicles zooming in like a high speed chase movie as we were leaving. The police officers surrounded a guy they threw to the ground right outside of the restaurant where we'd just eaten dinner.
It would be a terrible shame for the latter to become run down. It could have just been a bad day to visit.
