Lost me when she blamed crime on leaded gasoline. Otherwise, well thought out.

Good article. The leaded gasoline bit is pretty far fetched, more likely generations of bad parenting (or lack thereof).

The problems run much deeper than some leaded gasoline that all cities were subject too. I was perplexed by that as well. Anyone on here still live in the city? I am on the west side of the state. Like a different country over here. LOL.

Avoid that city at all costs, it really is the shinning example of democratic policies and entitlement programs. I for one couldn't be happier when they declared bankruptcy and picked a differant city to host the xgames

Maybe we can cut a deep trench at the city limits and just push Detroit off on Canada.
