  •  I picked Detroit... (none)
    a city I have never visited, in a State I once drove through to the UP for a camping venture.

    The reason I picked Detroit has a lot to do with my life long support with buying "American", most especially American cars, and more specifically Fords.  I always figured that everytime I bought one of those mechanically defective and out of date automobiles, I was helping keep a fellow American employed, and aiding all of the labor retirees that had come before him or her.

    I never figured Ford itself would actually act in a huge way at screwing its own employees and retirees.  Detroit, the hub of automobile manufacture in the historoy of the USA, has suffered so greatly, I could not pick any other city.  

    My rejection of other locales includes New Orleans.  After all, Detroit still retains its native flavor, and Detroit still retains its populace who haven't been hit by a hurricane that evacuated the entire city and left only the richest and white in control.  Detroit has been hit by a hurricane of automobile manufacturers seeking to screw labor, and abandoning the city for cheaper shores and cheaper labor...leaving the poor and those of color at the mercy of ?
