Sign of the times...cont'd.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions:"The [Allen Park, MI fire department] layoffs affect all 27 firefighters except for the chief, who is appointed. City officials could not say how much they need to save to avoid following through with the layoffs or how deep the city financial troubles are in the city. They also did not say whether they have a backup plan if the firefighters are laid off." (Det Freep)

The city of Allen Park is laying off its fire department. All of them.
