DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit's Emergency Manager is defending a statement he made in a recent article in the Wall Street Journal.  In that article he is quoted saying that, "For a long time the city was dumb, lazy, happy and rich."

Angry residents and supporters of the city lashed out on social media over the weekend.  In response,  Orr's spokesman Bill Nowling issued a statement saying that the EM was not referring to residents of the city. He says that Orr was referring to the decades of political leadership that brought Detroit to this point.
