    You're right about party affiliation being mostly irrelevant to the arc of Detroit's economic history.

    However, sorry about the threadjack, but you're wrong about Detroit not swinging a...

    Regarding the UA theater renovation, what possible successful business model exists for spending at least $25 million plus whatever endowment would be needed for an operating budget? Only an...

    The media is getting manipulated by the plaintiff's side on this one. Plaintiff has bootstrapped allegations in a legal pleading and an isolated stupid comment in a deposition from from a dumbass...

    Is there any public access to the Moten/Ilitch proposal for the UA building? What is proposed for parking? Are they proposing to use the existing lot that takes up the rest of the block, including...

    With the Fillmore, Fox, Music Hall, Masonic, Opera House, Fisher, Gem, Majestic and the casinos (including Caesar's Windsor) as event venues to compete with, it's pretty impossible to envision a...

    Wealthy, education-status obsessed families will go to excessive lengths to get their kid into a high-status university. Witness the recent Rick Singer admissions scandal where families were making...

    It's great that SMART has a route (FAST Michigan) that serves DTW. Unfortunately, the route's only resemblance to a shuttle is that it utilizes a bus (albeit one that is not a motor coach). The...

    +1. Once you get there, DTW is a breeze to use compared to most other US airports. Amenities are top notch too. But yes, the absence of access by public transit is appalling. And the worst...

    Agreed that the months/years delay for these projects (except for the Mid which is pretty recent) is frustrating and concerning. The article didnít really allay concerns for those projects. Fingers...

    I'm pretty comfortable with the level of my "research." What I know about "those times" is derived from a lot more than just listening to Granddad and Uncle Tony complain about how the old...

    Yes, astonishingly, there are literally millions of white folks around here that still think like this. Most pretty much think that if only all those black folks running things in Detroit weren't so...

    The Penobscot Building is still scuffling along. Occupancy is probably around 60% and Triple Properties is probably making a little profit because its capital investment upon purchase was so low. ...

    Yes but this time around arenít all those Mexican and Central American immigrants taking up all the high paying information technology jobs, displacing real Americans from our colleges and...

    A hotel on the JLA site would be a huge fail even with the proximity to the convention center. It seems unlikely that convention business alone could provide the necessary room-nights to make a...

    There was nothing B/S about the M/T article. It stated the facts. The various blockades culminating with the kinda/sorta traffic circle have been a huge urban planning fail. A complete waste of...

    Zacha, I think you're a little optimistic. From December through February, $550 would run the boiler(s) in that house for about a week, maybe a couple of days more. If you want to keep the place at...

    You're 100% correct because you undoubtedly know that this officer would never have pulled his "Taser a child from a moving vehicle" cowboy stunt if he was patrolling a neighborhood in Brighton.

    Russell Street deli has a long post on Facebook today that sheds some more light on their situation with their landlord, Mr. Nelson. ...

    If WSU harbors any possible dream of someday competing in Division I for basketball, 3000 seats for a new basketball arena seems a little small.

    Agree. Angelina was excellent. It's hard to sustain the level that restaurant maintained for as long as it did. Kudos to the owners. Never had a bad meal there.

    The NYT article mostly sidesteps the question of is there anything wrong happening in these racially changing neighborhoods. A complex question indeed. To the extent anyone might complain about the...

    The HBO segment was a bit more in depth than I expected. Surprised that they got Mr. Walsh to sit down for an interview. I would like to hear what he had to say without HBO's editing. Sense that...
