      One of Detroits problems in the past was being absorbed with glitz and entertainment as a substitute for a manufacturing economy.  What it got us was star-spangled distractions while the city went to hell.  Casinos are considered capitalism here now.  Knowing how to hit the slots is more important than learning how to be a good plumber, bricklayer or police officer.
