2. Ironic, that Detroit is showing signs of a significant local

Agricultural producer.

I've read where if you purchase a house in an area the City wants to see re-vitalized, the buyer gets first option to purchase any vacant lot adjoining -- for as little as $200.

6. I watched it happen as a resident.

I lived in the city until 1978, until work took me elsewhere.

What happened there should not happen anywhere. It's sad. Over a million people left the city.
