One year. One city. Endless opportunities.

More Shrinkin' Thinkin'

Sorry for posting later than usual today, but I'm under the weather. Still, I wanted to link to yet another good column from Jeff G. at the Free Press, this one on stopping the bleeding in the city. I hadn't seen this when I was cooking up my post about shrinking Detroit, but I think it's worth your time to read and consider, as he also addresses that point.

And I'm still looking to talk more policy on this matter with the brilliant posters who come here. (Michael Moore and his new movie have me thinking kinda wonkishly these days.) Got any any concrete ways we might be able to get around some of the legal and logistical problems that could come with reducing the size of the operational portion of our city? Seems like it's even more relevant now that we've got Mayor Dave Bing talking today about consolidating the number of properties owned and leased by the city that house Detroit employees. Jump in this thread or the one on shrinking Detroit to share your thoughts. I don't think this is an idea we can afford to stop discussing right now.

Thanks. And see you guys tomorrow.
