It was quick, but Flint got a little national attention last week. This time it wasn't because of crime or extreme weather, but a brief mention on the ABC hit show 'Scandal'. President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) answered a question from Michelle in Flint during a live TV segment.

"Saving your good stuff for Marietta?" The snarky inquiry from Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) seemed to imply that taking a question from a constituent in lowly Flint, Michigan wasn't worth the President's time.

"What? They love me in Flint," Grand retorted. "Flint and I go way back!" The exchange made me hit the rewind button. "Did I just hear that right?"

Hey, thanks for standing up for us, Fitz! Every little bit helps!
