154. OK... so no ideas from you.
Edited on Sun May-16-10 11:53 PM by LuckyTheDog
Look... I have NO IDEA whether or not the urban farm thing will work. But I do know that Detroit is nearly bankrupt and large sections of the city are virtually empty.

The city bears the burden of offering police and fire coverage, water and sewerage, street maintenance, etc., in parts of the city where there might be one or two lonely houses per block left standing. And in many of those cases, those lonely houses are owned by suburbanites who are renting them out and not maintaining them very well.

Something has to be done because the status quo is not sustainable. I am sorry if us bumpkins in Detroit can't come up with a solution that lives up to your lofty, morally superior standards. But, apparently, you don't have such a solution, either.
