A Big Event...
So, with the Super Bowl in the D, all I keep hearing about is how, "I feel safe," "The people are friendly," "The city is so clean," "Detroit has really rolled out the red carpet," and "This city knows how to throw a party!"
Too bad the world media wasn't here 3-4 months ago. Before all of these projects, done only for the Super Bowl, were even started. It makes me sick to think that this is all just an act, the mayor has done a great job of changing the appearance of the city for this week. Monday, or maybe a few days later, it's back to normal. The trash will be back, the homeless people will be allowed back on the streets, crime will pick back up, the run down buildings will again stand out, and people will only go to a 6 block area with the casinos, RenCen, and sports arenas.
On the bright side, the city will have to do all of this over again for the Final Four. Just like they did for the MLB All-Star game. I wish Detroit could face the issues for more than one week leading up to a big event.
