Detroit Raw by Sam Riddle

Hunkered down in Detroit mind snacks are layered to survive negative-41Arctic-like wind chills generated by Gore global warming. Raw is well aware the democracy destroyers are allowing the Detroit City Council and Mayor Duggan to operate under the illusion of democracy so we won’t question why America is not working in Detroit. I almost feel like a play-by-play announcer for a bowl game during this Detroit ...

On behalf of the city

The carefully constructed claim on competence and legitimacy by Gov. Rick Snyder and his emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, is eroding. The current drama of the proposed Barclays loan to pay off Bank of America and UBS reveals the pattern of this erosion. First, almost no one, even Snyder-Orr supporters, thought the original plan to borrow $350 million to pay $250 million to banks was a good idea. Those of us wh ...

Heidelberg-ology is the spirit of Detroit

Fire, violence and loss are a major part of Detroit’s painful story — and have become a tragic part of our saga. As we know too well, 50 years of appalling neglect in our city cannot be quickly halted or neatly undone. The human cost of long term neglect is seen and felt all around us.
