Detroit, it seems, has been hit very hard by the current state of the economy. I guess I am a pseudo-Detroiter (is that what one would call someone from Detroit?), having grown up in one of its "suburbs".
With the exception of the Red Wings, even the sports scene is depressing: almost everyone thinks that the Tigers will have a fire sale in mid June; the Pistons traded for Iverson ('nuff said); the Lions, well, they're the Lions.
Some interesting links though:
