The Crotch Bomber
Last month, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab of Nigeria attempted to detonate a bomb in his underwear while traveling from Amsterdam to Detroit. Passengers quickly subdued the would-be terrorist and unquestionably saved many lives. The Obama Administration as well as the Department of Homeland Security gets a big fat goose egg on this for missing the warning signs, including the fact the guy's father contacted the State Department fearing his son was up to something shady.
But really, the joke's on Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. Detroit? Nobody cares about Detroit, man, especially not the American people. That is unless of course you are a factory building a shitty car nobody wants.
Detroit? Have you read a newspaper? Have you seen their abandonded train station? It looks like a hideout for a lesser Batman villian.
We can all agree that nobody cares about Detroit. However, we do take exception with his methods. Blowing it up is a little much, don't you think? Our plan was to let it wither away slowly with white flight and lack of federal funding. But to just blow it up? How savage.
