Anarcho-Sinkhole?

When the government left these Detroit residents a road sinkhole and refused to own up to fixing that sinkhole, the residents turned it into an aquarium. While the hole remained for years, and filling with water, residents cleaned the hole of algae and stocked it with fish. This mini-pond encased in asphalt had become a home for many carp, catfish, and blue gill.

No government department has wanted to own up to the hole, of course, until it became a focus of national news. Residents claim that the Detroit Water & Sewage Department tore up the road, but that government department has pointed a finger at a utility company РDTE Energy Рas having created the mess. So while the various monopolists fight over who gets to claim the whole hole, the city came out to empty the hole and relocate the fish, because, as one worker said, they suspected ulterior motives in order to draw public criticism to the city and get the hole repaired. Well, it worked.
