The city that gave us our auto industry has contracted from 2 million residents to 900,000. Economically, it couldn’t be worse than Detroit.
A couple of recent stories out of Detroit should yank on any American’s heart strings. In this one, we have an interview with a man who has returned to subsistence hunting.
This one just gives us stark photographic evidence of the fact that Detroit is dead. I can’t imagine how I would feel if that were my home town.
The saddest part is that I bet Detroit hasn’t even hit rock bottom. I wonder if the city will exist at all in 50 years.
