Detroit and Music

Just saw this via Twitter. R. Florida is quoted in here. As is Mitch Albom.
A bit says:

'"Bare in Mind..... We All Find Behind, From Time To Time", is a popular quote from dance rockers, LCD Soundsystem and although these lyrics are uttered carefree, they conjure the sense of profound clairvoyance from the perspective a Detroiter.'

Seeing that I am an LCD Soundsystem loyal fan, I rarely find their lyrics carefree. But that is beside the point here. Having lived in Detroit myself for about half a year, I have often wondered about the sorry state of affairs in this city that once had so much promise. And the difficult economy has only made things harsher for this city.
Here's to hoping that the car industry fares better and that Detroit can re-capture the magic that it once was.

It is a shame what is happening with the city. Here's to hoping that things look up for Mo-town and the care industry.

Things is, Detroit has been suffering for quite some time. Hopefully, it will get in better shape along with everything else.

Seeing that we're close to MI, I wish the state and the city, the best.
