Is this for real? We already have a useless, boondoggle train to nowhere. It's called the People Mover. Trying to pretend Detroit is not a post-apocalyptic sh*t-hole is a waste of time.

Yes - another example of gevernment stupidity. A streetcar in a city that is one of the worst in the nation. Hope it has bullet proof windows in it.

LaHood brings us the streetcar named "Desire." Such projects are always prized for the direct jobs they bring plus the attendant financial activity. Whether the project is a success is secondary to many. "If you build it, they will come" is their mantra.

Federal government can't pay bills fer themselves. Detroit is only alive because of auto and sport events and special events.auto workers have had to take Big pay cut.r u kidding USA taxpayers? Give money only to people who have extensive background checks! Detroit is not a good investment. Trust me!
