Panic in Detroit

With Detroit putting the hurt on its citizens and giving more leeway to tourist oriented businesses that could potentially be operating in a featureless void, you have to wonder. Does the city want to pull up roots and cease to be? Do they consider Robocop to be aspirational?

Not unlike what happened to the poor residents of New Orleans, the new administration of Detroit appears to be telling its residents to leave. I guess they'll think of what's next some other time. This series of pictures of the changes there over the course of five years is astonishing.

Some of the plans that were made in NOLA post-Katrina - or had been waiting around since before Katrina - were jaw dropping. Is the same kind of predatory speculation at work in Detroit. My guess is if it wasn't before, it is now.
