Proper Introductions

Post by Maddox » 02:58:09 Monday, 05 August, 2013

So many of you have seen the thread in the Administration section regarding "my return". I was never really a member of the Molotov community in any real capacity, so I don't know if I would consider this being back, but I digress. For starters, no I am not Maddox from the Best Page in the Universe, I am a decidedly un-famous, un-successful writer and IT professional who lives in the Detroit metro area. My interests outside forum gaming include pretty much every other kind of gaming, cultural anthropology, psychology, history, amateur astronomy, hiking, avoiding the legions of wild dogs that have come to rule inner Detroit, and watching sports, mostly hockey and gridiron football.

If you don't know me, it's a pleasure to meet you. If you do know me, it's good to see you again.

I do remember you Mr. - you treated me fairly when others let their personal perceptions and feelings get in the way. Though ultimately your actions were undone by others, I nevertheless appreciate what you did.

So welcome back, Maddox. I hope you enjoy your stay this time.

Guten Tag Herr Maddox, it has been a while. Happy to see you here, I have to note, you were the first person I though about when I heard that Detroit declared bankruptcy, I don't know if that is a good or a bad thing.

The bankruptcy proceedings in Detroit have turned out to be a very complex issue, something I hope to discuss in the US Politics thread. Pending a federal intervention (very unlikely at this point), I think bankruptcy is the only real option open to the city government. The important thing is that the city maintains social services throughout the process, and that workers who were promised pension payments receive them (this is actually protected in the Michigan Constitution, specifically Article IX, Sec. 24). Otherwise, it gives us the chance to get out from under a debt we have no ability to pay, and starts the process of contracting the size of the city and improving the infrastructure of the city itself. There is already tremendous private sector support for this process of urban renewal, and the major hurdle is the city's debt.

tl:dr the bankruptcy is needed, but I don't know if I'd start to call it a good thing just yet.

You are Maddox's brother, if I recall correctly.

Regardless, be welcome.
