Detroit is an awful city. The population is actually in decline as people try to move away it, that's how horrible it is. About the only reason I would ever go near it is to watch the Red Wings.

Unfortunately, a lot of those people moving away are part of what made it so bad, and they're moving to where I live. Awesome. Grand Rapids has gotten a bit worse in the past few years and I'm pretty sure that's the cause.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]
