Flint Expatriates: A blog for the long-lost residents of Flint, Michigan. Flint has suffered a massive population exodus over the years. If you're from Flint but now living somewhere else, you've probably experienced the mixture of excitement and sadness you feel when you run into somebody from Flint in Portland or Miami or San Francisco or Little Rock or Alaska. (OK, some of the people you run into from Flint induce a little fear, as well, but that just reminds you of home.) Sometimes it seems like Flint residents are everywhere...except Flint. I've lived all over since I left town, and it's amazing to me how often I find myself talking to someone about the Rusty Nail or the terrors of the Dupont Street bus. If I wear my Angelo's Coney Island hat, it's inevitable that a Flint refugee will initiate a conversation. This blog is just a way to pass along news from Flint and, I hope, for Flint expatriates to connect. Because why should you sit in that sports bar in Atlanta watching the Tigers on cable when you can share your memories of Michigan & Trumbull with someone else who did time in The Vehicle City?
