I watched “House Hunters” on TV last weekend, and saw a couple check out a grand Detroit home, with gorgeous fireplaces in practically every room. Price tag: $440,000.
I couldn’t help but think then that a similar house in California would have had a price tag of $5 million, because folks want to live in the West Coast state but not so much in Detroit. Even so, I thought “Detroit. Good deal.”
Today, I read this Los Angeles Times story: “De-industrialization, racism, stagnation– is the Motor City our future?”
Now I’m thinking (about U.S. cities, especially those, like ours in Rockford, with such industrial/car ties): “Help.”
