Making Hell A Nicer Place

The big news from Michigan is that John Colone of the infamously named town of Hell wants to create a Hell Downtown Development Authority. The plan is to take taxes being paid by the three businesses in Hell (Colone owns two of them) and spend them in Hell rather than elsewhere in the county.
He has worked for years to clean up Hell to capitalize on its name as a tourist attraction. “More people have told you to come to our town that any other on earth,” Colone said.
You can't fault a guy for trying to clean up Hell. I've been to Hell (and back) twice. Most recently, I rode a bicycle there last year. To see some pictures of what Colone has accomplished so far, click here. It's a nice start, but you can see that there is lots more potential there.
