Why I Love Detroit

May 13th, 2009 . by economistmom


I usually cross-post some of my best fiscal policy commentaries here onto my Facebook profile, but here’s one (non-fiscal-policy commentary) that I posted on Facebook first.  CNN-Money featured this great set of stories written by people who live in the Detroit area (where I grew up) about why they love Detroit–even now.  I just spent the weekend there with old (uh, long-time, high school) friends–a  sort of “warm-up” to our 30th(!) reunion which takes place in a couple months.  As I prefaced on Facebook:

I was reminded this past weekend that why I love Detroit is for the people there and their love of life–even in these trying times. Maybe it’s that history of fast cars and fun music that helps.

    Thanks for posting that. It made me think of the ads that one of the Detroit TV stations used to run urging people to “Stand Up and Tell ‘Em You’re from Detroit.”
