I didn't realize things were that bad in Detroit until I read this article. I can't believe that a city of close a million people only has four Starbucks, no Borders and no chain grocery stores. Holy moly. How did things get that bad that quickly?
I also read an article about how China will soon be the number two market for Porsche. It's time to put a stop to other countries getting rich off our debt. We need to curb needless spending and do what we can to boost innovation to bring the technological leadership back. Otherwise the US will be just a land of consumers like the fat asses in WALL-E.
