Why doesn't Ebay with its 24 billion a year in revenue and some of the other Fortune 500 companies engage in a little philanthropic effort and help bail Detroit out? Some of these big corporate entities have coffers of obscene excess money that could be put to good use here.

You may well be on to something. Let Orr put Belle Isle and the Manoogian Mansion. I'm sure someone would make the comparison to a slave auction though.

I think Detroit's many creditors that will go unpaid represent enough of a philanthropic effort. It's time for Detroiters to get up off their lazy butts and work or study.

How about a provision that only non-residents could run for office? I saw someone here suggest that. You don't let the five year olds rule the class. If people are unprepared for self-rule, you need to step in and provide leadership.

Typical black Jessie Jackson, al "notso" Sharpton response. always wanting always waiting for some one else to bail your lazy black rear end out?

Get a life get into the realm of reality here GET A JOB.

No body on the planet surface gives a big fat rats rear end what happens to you or Detroit.

If you don't like the failure that is Detroit or about to become Chicago get up off da couch put down da warm beer the TV remote go out and change it into what you think it should be.

ain't nobody in this solar system going to fix it for you, you got to fix it your very own self or just shut up and live with the mess you allowed Detroit to become.

stop your whining already, go get a real job.
