    is probably the EmerMgr's rationale.

    otoh - House & Senate Republicans claim we "don't have the money" for Infrastructure that would create PRIVATE jobs, more taxpayers, more demand - resulting in more jobs.

    "Tax cuts for the 1% create jobs." -- Republicans, HAHAHA - in China

      Are a truckers nightmare, not to mention daily drivers and tourists.  Just think of all the roads that could be repaired for that kind of money.   Besides, there is nothing wrong with Joe Louis Arena.  The city wants the Joe because it is on the river front and they believe they can develop it to appeal to tourists.  Not going to happen unless they can fix the crime.  In Detroit, for many, many people the average response time to a 911 call is 58 minutes.  

      I will never forget, as long as I live, the day the entire world had hope... 01/20/09
