Being out west, where everything's supposedly so fabulous and modest homes up until recently sold for the kind of money that could buy you an entire Detroit neighborhood today, really isn't all it is cracked up to be.
For one, everyone is giving off this sort of panicky vibe, which is annoying. Oh to be back in Michigan, where everyone already knows how bad things can get. Maybe that's why Detroit in particular seems so calm these past few weeks. That and having a mayor who isn't a world-class putz.
