Supposedly this is good for the city. It's sure not good for renters who never know what the future holds. Landlords will charge what they can. Employers will not increase wages fast enough to cover. People on fixed income are squeezed out.

A person needs to own something to control their own existence or learn how to cultivate a money tree.

Say what?

Are you sure downtown Detroit buildings really have roofs?

I thought those soul brothers stole those roofs along with cooper wiring, water pipes anything else of value in those buildings and sold that stuff for scrap years ago.

That's what I like about this site its a constant provider of informal education to da public.

Keep up the good work educating da public, keeping folks on the cutting edge of society evolution from the church of what's happening now.

Knowledge is power.

where can I purchase one of those bibles with a space hollowed out for my 9MM and extra clip?

It would appear you are missing or were born with a defective sense of humor gene. Or could you be one those people born at the shallow end of the gene pool where there isn't enough of the humor gene to make you laugh at anything no matter how absurd or detached from reality?

In some societies or cultures the ability to create humor out of normal everyday situations is a sign of intelligence clearly that is not the case in Detroit where there is so little to laugh about or even snicker about.

So where can I purchase my Gnu and improved bible??

You mean to suggest that real adults who can read on grade actually read this meaningless drivel?

What do they do with the information?

what do you do with the information you read?

Still think you take your self and Detroit way too seriously.

The few People in the rest of the country who have been following the trials & tribulations of Detroit have pretty much written Detroit off as a lost unsalvageable cause.

Time to go back to da drawing boards and revise the plan for the future.

People actually read this stuff hun?
