#1 "We are in an environment, I think, of entitlement, we've got a lot of people who are city workers, who for years and years, 20, 30 years, think they are entitled to a job and all that comes with it," Bing said.

A Steven Hawking moment for sure.

#3 Blood ticks live off the life blood of its victim, giving nothing in return, but death.

#4 Was talking to guy about the woes of destroit. He said he came across a story about a fellow who bought an old football stadium for $250k and built a house on the field, so some people are getting good deals.

Tried to find the story; too good to dismiss.

#6 "So we can bring people and families together like it used to be."

That would require innate family values.
Out of wedlock birthrates say its not going to happen with the population you have. That behavior is not going to change as long as people believe government is a substitute for their day to day living costs and support that the 'family' performed for thousands of years of human societal evolution. It wasn't perfect, but it worked. You got more of what you subsidized and it doesn't work.

#7 Bing said he wants to convince people in largely abandoned neighborhoods to move to more populated areas

Maybe he could read up on the Khmer Rouge for tips...

#9 #7 Bing said he wants to convince people in largely abandoned neighborhoods to move to more populated areas

Largely abandoned? I guess there wouldn't be much movement to more populated areas then.

#10 All of when which does not detract from the fact that Bing was a seven time NBA All-Star - the pre-Bling and tougher NBA at that.
