Who really cares? When belle isle really mattered was decades ago. How detroit acts is known by the nation. Maybe some of this money the kilpatricks and cronies bribed can revive some of these iconic memories when people remembered it as a jewel along with many places. When u think about what really keeps detroit purring. Special events. Casinos. Sports. Festivals. Can anyone else name things? Dearborn has henry ford museum and Greenfield village.detroit city airport is there. Romulus has metro Wayne county airport tainted in this childish immature selfish corruption that officials there tried to hide. Honesty and integrity r really something that can bring any region to pride itself. Good things should over shadow the bad but when officials r part of the bad , what else can be done to justify this?
