Unstoppable Matty By Jack Lessenberry

Unstoppable Matty
Like a zombie, Moroun takes a beating and shambles forward
By Jack Lessenberry
You have to have a certain amount of grudging admiration for Matty Moroun, sort of like you do for crabgrass or those zombies in the low-budget horror flicks we used to watch as kids, when we should have been running around getting fresh air and exercise.
Matty takes a licking; has holes blown through him, is exposed and denounced, and he keeps staggering on, as only a true zombie can, toward the goal of twinning his Ambassador Bridge, or at least preventing a new, internationally owned one from being built.

The third season of Spirit Spit Open Mic is upon us!

Come out on the second Sunday of the month, including January 10th, from 5-8 p.m., to inspire or to be inspired. A light meal is served. Donations accepted but not required.
