 Good morning everybody.  A little humor to start the day.
 
 
This happened on a flight getting ready to depart for Detroit.

Jack was sitting on the plane when a guy took the seat beside him. The guy was an emotional wreck, pale, hands shaking, moaning in fear.  "What's the matter?" Jack asked. 

"I've been transferred to Detroit, there's crazy people there.  
They've got lots of shootings, gangs, race riots, drugs, poor 
publicschools, and the highest crime rate."

Jack replied, "I've lived in Detroit all my life.  It's not as bad as the media says.  Find a nice home, go to work, mind your own business, enroll your kids in a nice private school. It's as safe a place as anywhere in the world." 

The guy relaxed and stopped shaking and said, "Oh, thank you.  I've been worried to death. But if you live there and say it's OK, I'll take your word for it.  What do you do for a living?" 

"Me?" said Jack.  "I'm a tail gunner on a Budweiser truck."

I've been to Detroit, interesting place, strange too. Only place I ever saw that went from super wealthy to absolute poverty just by crossing the street. The only time I needed a gun was after we had been to Windsor Canada and I had left it at my sister's house. Fortunatly my brother-in-law didn't mind breaking the traffic laws to get us out of trouble.

Oh sorry. My sister and brother-in-law took us to Windsor for pizza, so I left my pistol at their house (Canadian gun laws you know). After that we went to downtown Detroit and walked around and everything was fine (cops everywhere), but when we left downtown a car with a couple of Detroit's drunk citizen brothers pulled along side of us and started giving us trouble. Being the redneck cop that I was, I wasn't taking crap off anybody, so I asked my brother-in-law if he had a tire iron in his trunk. He had this look of terror on his face and he just hit the gas and took off at a high rate of fuel consumption, running a couple of red lights and turning down several streets loosing the goblins. They were absolutely terrified of the blacks in Detroit saying that they would just shoot you. The beat that I road at that time was mostly a black project so I was not intimidated. Anyway nobody got hurt, but I didn't leave the house without my pistol and I didn't go to Canada anymore. Aint been back to Detroit either (sister and b-in-law moved back here).
