Detroit lives

Thanks for Dan/Margaret for pointing to this docu about Detroit, which shows there are many more sides to "Motor City" than is generally shown these days, including very positive ones.
(You can fit Manhattan, Boston, and LA within Detroit city limits. Holy moley.)

By the way, users of the Safari browser should check out Extensions for it. For example I use  
  • YouTubeWide 
  • Turn Off the Lights 
  • A Cleaner YouTube
to make YouTube videos bigger and give a dark and simple background.

Other extensions I've found useful are:
  • TypeToNavigate
  • AutoPagerize
  • Thurly
  • Adblock
  • Invisible Hand

Here's an interesting article about how Arab-Americans are flocking to the Detroit suburbs. Seems to me like it could be a good gamble, with lower-priced commercial and residential real estate available.

Detroit's not gonna die. It's taken a flurry of punches for 30 years or so, but it's a cool city that'll rebound, just like New Orleans has.
