  •  Aahh - Ann Arbor - the city of perpetual youth (4+ / 0-)

    I lived in Ann Arbor for a number of wonderful years, and it was always beautiful, and always full of young folks eager to learn (and smoke pot, but that's another story!).

    Sadly, I can't say my (formerly) beautiful hometown Detroit is still beautiful - it went from middle-class, blue-collar paradise to a living hell in the short space of 20+ years.

    Last time I was back, Detroit's Woodward Avenue looked more like bombed-out East Berlin than East Berlin ever did. Sad what has happened to our beautiful city, and our noble state.  Sad, indeed.

    "Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam, circumspice."*

    Not any more ;-(

    * Michigan state motto - "if you seek a beautiful peninsula, look around (you)".

    Barack Obama - a President OF the people, BY the people, FOR the people - FINALLY!
