A rose by any other name.......
Tonight is ‘angel’s night’, in Detroit anyway. It used to be called ‘devil’s night’ and still is in the rest of the country. The reason for the name change is to prevent all of the little angels in the city from engaging in the annual ritual of torching abandoned and occupied homes. That’s the solution. For out-of-towners that’s what we refer to as Detroit logic. Maybe the local preachers can hold an anti-arson prayer vigil as they do to curb the violence in the inner-city, which is equally as effective.
