Detroit could be the poster city for America becoming a third world nation??

Detroit Mayor Plans to Halt Garbage Pickup, Police Patrols in 20% of City; Expect Bankruptcy, Massive Municipal Bond Turmoil in 2011. Detroit has been bankrupt for years. It simply refuses to admit it. Detroit's schools are bankrupt as well. A mere 25% of students graduate from high school.
Yet, in spite of hints and threats from mayors and budget commissions, and in spite of common sense talk of bankruptcy, Detroit has not pulled the bankruptcy trigger.

Detoit to close 45 schools in June.

In a continuing overhaul of one of the most troubled school systems in the nation, officials in Detroit on Wednesday announced a plan to close 45 of 172 public schools at the end of the academic year. The move is the latest in a string of efforts aimed at rescuing an academically failing district in the midst of a financial crisis.

Watch the documentary "Requiem for Detroit"...

Absolutely crazy!

A city built for over 2 million people now has less than 800,000 living there!

Investment opportunity?

Detroit — A record 22,504 properties are going up for auction next month in Wayne County because of nonpayment of taxes, further evidence of the real-estate crash whose aftershocks still reverberate.

The foreclosures are up 57 percent from 14,290 last year, and officials with nonprofit agencies working to keep residents in homes say they're bombarded with pleas for help. The vast majority of the properties, 20,040, are in Detroit.
