Someone in my office spotted this...

To bid on Superbowls, apparently they hold some kind of trade fair for the contenders. Detroit's booth was a mock loft with a panoramic view of the city. Except the photo was doctored to make the city look vibrant. Oops.

No problem? Hmmm.... I wonder what would be the outcome if I doctored up photos of my city for economic development marketing. Somehow, I think people would question the ethics of that.

Bad Detroit. Bad.

Urban renewal, Buffalo style. Here's what happens when America's second most Catholic city stops going to confessional, starts eating meat on Friday, and starts dating women from outside the parish. It ain't pretty.
