Trips to Detroit are always heavy with disbelief. How did this happen - how does it continue to happen? It was absolutely too cold to get out and wander so I drove the empty roads looking for something new but found nothing but old tires. As a kid I loved driving down I-94 watching the big tire cross the road. Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels on the radio. There was a football and a soccer team called The Wheels. It's not surprising in the Motor City but the vast amount of discarded tires on almost every block was disgusting. Come on Detroit! Let's make 2010 the year they stop talking about how bad the city is.
