There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
I am still trying to wrap my head around the courts saying a delivery place can't choose where to deliver.
That is seriously disturbing to me.

Where did that impression come from?
It's not in the article of the OP.
There doesn't seem to be any indication via Google that any such thing has actually occurred.
AFAICT, the story about Jets Pizza was published / reported two days ago.
I honestly doubt that anything has made it through the court system over the weekend.
And not only where did the idea come from, how has it grown legs?
Would you please be so kind as to indulge my curiosity?
No one else has been able to provide any evidence of Jets Pizza being required to deliver to Detroit.

I may be wrong.
It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.
I don't blame them a bit. Imo, it's not worth putting your employees' lives at risk to make the extra money. If the people in Detroit can't get their **** together, and act like decent human beings, they can end up without pizza delivery services at all, as far as I am concerned.

I said that to be funny, but there is truth in that humor, Haymarket. Senior citizens, and white ones at that, aren't usually the targets of gang violence. I'd hate to be a 24-year-old guy with his girl walking in such neighborhoods. He's a mark because of his age. He's also got the lit fuse on his arm. Baaaad business in some neighborhoods.
Thank you, Quazi!
We used to get combat pay in the army in the 60's. Why would any "manager" feel justified in sending a person in to harms way? Wasn't Cabrini Green leveled becuase of the violence. Laws are being passed all over this country forbidding teens to drive after curfew and to drive with more than one other teen in the car. Since this culture is what it is with no hope of change such rule and laws will be passed. My work location had to put up razor wire surrrounding our parking lot because of daily episodes with car thieves. It looks like Auschwitz now.
Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.
