Detroit resident Bill Hickey addresses the media outside federal court in Detroit, Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 after attending a Detroit bankruptcy hearing. Dozens of residents have told a judge why they oppose Detroit’s bankruptcy, but they had to do it in three minutes or less. “I just found myself to be really buoyed by all the other citizens that were there today and listening to their words.

I earned it.” (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)
