I was there many, many years ago. Grandparents lived there, he used to own an advertising agency in Chicago. He'd take a train there , every day. Wheaton used to be a nice place, but now I'm sure its ghetto.

Of course they are no longer running their finances. They proved they couldn't and the corruption ran rampant.

Ok, so when the repubs at the state level fail to do the same, whom are you going to blaim then? The dems some more? Lets remember that the same state leadership has tried this emergency financial manager in mulitple cities already and have had next to no success.
Im not saying they cant fix detroit, but things are not looking good for them; so fly or fall, the ball is now in the state repubs court.

This is what will eventually happen to all cities. Their fiscally irresponsible generosity will end up bankrupting them. This might be a good time to take a realistic look at overcompensated public unions all across this country.
