Media Pick Over Detroit's Bones, Again

These are the two most interesting shots, I think, from a Time photoessay called "Detroit's Beautiful, Horrible Decline."

Never have an American city's misfortunes been so ghoulishly chronicled by the mass media.

Meanwhile, the people who actually live there are trying to do all kinds of interesting things, like build a long-awaited regional transit network. EDIT: And this.



In fairness, it's Detroit's own fault for having such cool looking bones.

Nobody has cooler bones than Detroit, that's for sure.
