    Is Saginaw the new Detroit?

    SAGINAW, Mich. Dozens of vacant homes have been set ablaze since a pre-Halloween arson spree last week, causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage.
    While Detroit has really toned down as the city has been making a slow recovery back to potential greatness, another Michigan city seems to pick up the slack.

    So... Wanigas, is this your handy work?
    "The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism." - George Washington

    It looks like it will save the city on demolitions though. If they are vacant anyway, a localized fire could be a blessing.....
    Who's gonna re-invent the wheel today?
