by Larry LaBorde, Gold Seek:
The lovely Miss Puddy once again accompanied me on another trip. This time the destination was Detroit. I wanted to see the famous Detroit Institute of Art before the bankruptcy judge ordered all the pieces to be sold. There has been a lot of ink spilled on Detroit recently. While visiting the city I read Charlie LeDuff’s new book, “Detroit, an American Autopsy” which I highly recommend.
Many people feel Detroit did itself in with unions, municipal corruption and incompetent industrial leadership. In other words, a death by its own hand. It is comforting to sit at a distance and say Detroit was a suicide and therefore it cannot happen here. But be careful for as LeDuff writes, “Go ahead and laugh at Detroit. Because you are laughing at yourself.”
