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┬áto 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.
