Fuck Politeness

This is a revolution, not a public relations movement

So the SMH is running a piece on affordability of housing in Sydney as compared to other cities.

All content based discussion aside, this was what made me do a double take:

”Also, comparing Sydney to Detroit isn’t really fair. Sydney is one of the world’s best cities, and that creates price pressures that aren’t there and will never be there in, say, Kansas.”

So he wants to say the comparison is disengenious…and to prove it he says Detroit and Sydney aren’t comparable…Sydney is the world’s best city…wheras Kansas…

Kansas??? Who’s talking about Kansas? Detroit is in Michigan no? Is he trying to slip one by by pretending Detroit’s in Kansas? Or is it meant to belittle Detroit as a city by comparing it to…some other state? Oi.
