Anyone Gov. Snyder appoints to “fix” the problem will fail because his or her efforts will be derided and attacked as being “racist”.
This Son of the Motor City is heartbroken. It hurts when I see the city of my birth and first 17 years ground into the dirt. It was a great place to grow up in the 40s and 50s. Not one of my old high school classmates lives in the city; most have moved to Livonia or downriver. Even my cousin and his wife, who had once been members of the “Save Detroit Coalition” have pulled up stakes and moved to Grosse Pointe, even though they both still work downtown. RIP, Motown.
