Mitten and the Antique Car Collection
I was thinking of writing a screen play loosely based on Detroit's bankruptcy staring Michael Douglas as the Governor of a fictional state called Mitten. The states largest city called Metrodroid is in financial trouble. The Governor is getting political pressure from the wealthier citizens of the state, who happen to be big contributors to his campaign, to do something about the financial woes of Metrodroid. The contributors, many of whom are heirs of individuals who donated classic cars to the city, are concerned that if the city declares Chapter 9 bankruptcy the political leaders of the city will try to sell off the car collection, that has an estimated value of somewhere between $10 and $15 billion dollars, and use it to improve the schools and infrastructure of the city in hopes of reviving the metropolis and making it a far better place to live. These contributors feel they have a right to enjoy the car collection even if it is presently owned by the city of Metrodroid.
