Has God opened up jobs in the city yet?

I don’t want to rush the Big Guy, but it’s been 20 hours since Detroiters (including state Representative David Nathan) gathered at Campus Martius to pray the recession away. I figure if He can create the heavens and the earth and all the rest in six days, it shouldn’t take Him but a few hours to create a financial breakthrough. So did the praying work or what?

Last I heard, we still have an opening for a Savior.

We all know Detroit is going to be fixed by Johnny Knoxville’s internet commercial for Palladium boots.

Is that Patrice Oneal at the bottom of that poster? He’s my favorite talking head on those VH1 I Love the ’80s shows.

Don’t be knockin’ the prayer thing.
Prayer got us into this mess and prayer will get us out of it.

Considering the number of preachers in this town, I’d say that God’s been doing more than His part to employ the unemployable. It’s not His fault that their children can’t get elected onto the public payroll.

A big bird pooped on my truck.

Does that count?

Did you read the actual article? Michigan’s recent job gains are a little like the Lions tripling their 2009 win total.

Obviously, Michigan has a long road back, having had the nation’s worst jobless rate during a decade of economic upheaval that didn’t hammer much of the rest of the country until 2008. And Michigan is still the toughest place in the nation to find work, with 8.24 job seekers for each available position, according to the Juju.com Job Search Difficulty Index.
