Welp.

Good job bailing out the automakers. The area really seems to be blossoming.

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Detroit Mayor Dave Bing says he spoke by phone with Michigan Governor Rick Snyder today. He says the governor will announce his decision regarding the possible appointment of an Emergency Financial Manager for the city of Detroit on Friday.
The mayor said, "Everybody's got a pretty good idea of what the announcement is going to be."
When asked whether he expected the governor to announce the choice of an EFM, Bing said, "Not immediately."

Earlier today, WXYZ reported that Mayor Bing said the governor would announce a state takeover on Friday. The mayor says he did not make that statement and a review of his comments indicates that he did not specifically say a takeover would be announced.

"I shouldn't make the announcement, the Governor will make it," said Bing while talking with reporters following a speech before the Detroit Regional Chamber at the MotorCity Casino.

Detroit just needs to be bulldozed and start over again. Funny thing is Windsor is right across the river and is a real nice place.

The unions will save detroit. They never leave a former city high and dry and no new skills to use once they go.

So are the Detroit suburbs.

The automakers have added jobs and the economy has gotten better in that area (although it is still one of the worst in the country), but nobody is moving back into Detroit. It is run down, lacks services in many parts of the city, and is dangerous. If people move there, they're going to live in the suburbs, not the city.

Robocop - a documentary well ahead of it's time.

I'd buy that for a dollar!
