Detroit: Anarcho-Goats to Replace Government Workers?

Email Print

I love any story about government being so incompetent that unionized, pensionized, lifetime-employed city workers need to be replaced by … goats. Since Detroit can’t afford to maintain thousands of acres of vacant land in spite of its bloated payroll, one City Councilman wants to explore using goats and sheep to mow the city’s overgrowth. What a glorious idea. In fact, let’s move the urban agriculture into Phase II by luring eco-agricultural farmers to raise grass-fed cows, pastured pigs, and free-range chickens among Detroit’s thousands of acres of unoccupied salad bars.
