Detroit Offers Free Houses To Writers; Wonkette Moving HQ to Detroit
In an effort to help revitalize the city, a Detroit nonprofit is offering free houses to writers who come to live and work there for a minimum of two years. Your Wonkette definitely wants to get in on a deal like this, so the entire writing staff is preparing to pick up and move. As a bunch of liberal 47-percenters, we really do feel entitled to free stuff, so we figure we'll just show up and say, OK, here we are, let's get to revitalizing. Might make for a half-decent reality show, too. Editrix will get her own place, Lisa and Kaili can have another, Gary and Alex can split a swinging bachelor house, and DDM and Yr. Dok Zoom can take the Curmudgeon Quarters. And then we'll all zip up and down the street on our 7-rider conference trike. This is going to be awesome.
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
