The Death of Detroit, Part II

Detroit Blog has further photographic documentation of the decline of Detroit.

Those grassy fields were once neighborhoods filled with people.

Michael Barone reports the collapse in population in Detroit:

In 1950, when I was in kindergarten in Detroit, the city had a population of (rounded off) 1,850,000. Today the latest census estimate for Detroit is 886,000, less than half as many.

Eh...we can't be concerned with a city like Detroit. As Conservatives, we know that coporations have no responsibilities to workers or cities. The key is the bottom line and so we should not shed a tear for Detroit as a city. Company profits are the key not people.
