All knowing Wikipedia indicates about 30 David Clarks.

Headphones are the solution. What's the problem?

I would think "the right" would be ecstatic about this excellent example of creative destruction, heralding it as progress! This apparent failure of Detroit simply clears the way for a better city to emerge. Isn't this exactly how government should be run (more like business)?

It's just too bad that Bain wasn't able to grab a piece of this pie.

"The right" has been salivating over Detroit's demise for 40+ years. The conventional wisdom in Michigan was always: "Detroit should solve its own problems."

I predict that the outcome of the latest incident will be: "Detroit should solve its own problems."

That is because you assume that the right thinks like the left does. They don't.

Sandi, that is the most interesting thing I have read in a while.
What does the 'right' that are not big old fans of Weyrich, Uncle Milton, Ayn Rand, and the evil side of Sinclair's 'The Jungle' think?
Honest discourse is very important.
What do you think?

Couldn't tell ya. I haven't read any of them. However I know how the left gets almost orgasmic when anything the right is for/follows or wants is defeated or destroyed.

Haven't read them ehhh? Ya might want to at least 'google' it, as this defines the 'modern' right's current state of 'innovation'.
As to your third sentence above - nice bit of projection.
Although, what you point out is something all sides charging any issue should be mindful of. Such is the tendency of humanity in war, and love.
Thank you for letting me know, a bit, of what you think.

Fine,
But are they your own opinions or do they echo the chatter you have been fed without knowing the purpose for which it was produced?
It is important for all to be on guard regarding this trickery.

Sandi doesn't care to challenge her own version of reality. She "knows" all she cares to know, thankyouverymuch.

There you have the latest pronouncement from America's alternate universe.

Plenty of people think this way, but only a few actually say it out loud and with pride.

Anyone who's interested in the roots of Detroit's demise should Google the "Detroit Model City" program and "Jerome Cavanagh". Another "Great Society" nightmare that brought Soviet-Era "command and control" central planning-style misery to citizens and sent businesses and said citizens running for the suburbs

Detroit truly is the poster-child for unbridled leftism. Enjoy the results!
