house - to apartment) on the south side of the Flint Engine plant, next to
the Camaro lounge, for any Flintonians on this list. I was attending GMI
as a student co-op. Unemployment was about 40%. People were literally
sitting on the street corners with nothing to do. I remember people
walking through our parking area looking for half burnt cigarettes so they

GM probably because it is an ecological diasaster. (If you sell it, you
