    No one in their right mind is ever like, "I'd love to spend a year or two in Detroit" or "I want to raise my family in Detroit" are they?

    This guy (Les Gold) loves Detroit and living there. Of course, he's making nothing but money screwing the local indigents out of their possessions at his pawn shop.

    about 500,000 southerners and immigrants who wanted to live a better life and get paid a decent wage.

    Isn't there some little artistic enclave that has developed in more recent years? If I could live there rent free, I'd totally live in Detroit...better than what I'm doing now. :dontknow:

    Nope. Doesn't count. They're getting paid to go there.

    I'm talking about how people will leave a good job on a whim to move to new york, Chicago, LA or south Florida.

    Because the crime rates go down and the quality of living goes up. :secret:

    Very sad. So many people have trouble seeing a broader world and a bigger picture. :(
