You know how the saying goes: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

What about when life (and by life I mean progressive Democrats) hands you a decaying city, crumbling under the weight of its own inept leadership?

Entrepreneur Mark Siwak seems to think a 200-acre zombie theme park is just what the city needs:

Siwak is attempting to raise $145,000 to fuel his concept for Z World, which seems a bit like the post-apocalyptic amusement land in the film “Zombieland” or the Halloween haunt events set up each year around Southern California.

Detroit has been in steady, sprawling decline for years. As the city’s population flees and blight spreads, large swaths of Detroit have begun to crumble.

Siwak wants to raise funds for engineering studies of such empty structures, where he plans to site his park.

Think of it as an immersive camping trip or a video game sprung to life, set in an abandoned, walled-off sector of Detroit. Participants would be chased by a zombie horde through derelict factories, stores and homes.

Help me out with this: Is it really a credit to the city that its once lustrous neighborhoods are now the perfect backdrop for post-apocalyptic gameplay?

“It turns perceived liabilities into assets that will bring a renewed vitality to a struggling neighborhood,” Siwak wrote of his amusement park idea.  “When done right, Z World Detroit would be transformative for part of the city, it would create jobs for Detroiters and become a legitimate destination.”

Who says progressives aren’t job creators?!
