Almost Lost Detroit

Check out this video for Detroit hip-hop artist Marqise Porter's song "Almost Lost Detroit". This isn't a high budget slick video, just a collection of pictures showing the blight and despair in The D along with some bleak, sobering statistics. I thought this would be a good companion to run with the recent article I posted below about the potential automobile industry bail-out. Imagine, if you could, that the situation could get much worse even.

Thanks to Gluck for the link.

Wow. This inspired me. I posted a blog of my own:

I had to move from Michigan to find work in St. Louis and you feel the geospatial dislocation every day. The weather. The dialect. No "up north". No fresh water oceans. No Mystery Spot. No Mackinac Island. No Joe Louis Fist. No Spirit of Detroit. I am hoping for a return one day.
