"Y2K Preparations Underway - (DETROIT) -- Preparations are being made for the upcoming Y-2-K computer glitch. The Detroit City Council is determining whether to spend 200-thousand dollars for water, food and other disaster relief items. In the neighboring upscale suburb of Troy, city leaders are undecided on how best to prepare for Y-2-K. The city management is recommending the council spend about 170-thousand dollars on disaster relief items like mats, blankets, water, flashlights, duffle bags, games and other supplies, just in case the dreaded computer glitch causes problems. "

But hey, YOU shouldnt do something like this, you're a doomer if YOU do it.

Wow, a little bit less than 50 cents per resident. Detroit residents might want to think about self-reliance.
