As an ex-patriot Detroiter (Metro Detroiter) I feel a certain obligation to pass along any information that might show the world that my erstwhile home city is not, in fact, a completely desolate wasteland devoid of any living thing.
As such, I would like to draw your attention to this blog post from a site called The Urbanophile. The site also has some stuff on Chicago, for you Chicago minded readers.
Side note: I would like to propose that we officially declare Tuesday a worse workday than Monday. All those in favor?
