Woah woah woah... Let ME set things straight, since I supposedly "started this." I never meant to start a fued (I think thats how you spell it.... LOL). I said I like Detroit. Im from Seattle, and while I like it, I like do sincerely like Detroit. Seattle is a Pacific Rim city. Thats why we're so cosmopolitan. And surprisingly we're still 70% white. I believe our foreign born population is around 20%. Comparing this with Detroit, your white population is only around 12% and your foreign-born population is the lowest of any major american city at 5%. Seattle used to be a one-industry kind of town like Detroit, Detroit being centered around the automobile while Seattle was centered around Boeing. Luckily, Seattle had an opportunity to diversify its economy and thats why our economy is so vibrant now. Detroit is just now able to do it and is making some good progress. Detroit also has some pretty severe racial issues that seattle has never had, due largely in part to our geographic isolation that also is the reason for our late development. Anywho, I could write a report on this crap. Im so passionate about it.... :-) But to make things clear... I did not mean to start a war here. Im very sorry. And Im also surprised to those of you who read everything. Kudos!
