    I don't know if this was aimed at me, but I would certainly take issue if it was, as I did no spinning here.

    Nope.

    The black line in the map is the City of Detroit border; the grey is the international border and still on the correct side of Belle Isle.

    You most certainly did.

    First, you interjected yourself in an exchange between myself and another poster, in which you did not belong.

    I'm not going to go very far down this road with you, as you seem motivated by racism, betrayal of your country and love of trashy journalism and worse presidents.

    That said, if you paid...

    Obviously, in a literal sense shifting 500,000 people between 2 mid-sized cities would be absurdly chaotic.

    I didn't suggest 'willy nilly' redistribution.
