Best blog in Detroit?

Not to kick you out or anything, but are you reading Detroitblog? He has what this blog considers its dream job - wandering around the Motor City, talking to the weirdos, the entrepreneurs, the homeless people and this week, the librarians. Sample quote:

"Throughout Detroit there are still little libraries full of books that half the residents can’t even read."

Bookmark this one, for real.

Well said - respect is the key, really. Detroit may be a theatre of the absurd, but it's people too. In many cases, wonderful people.

I'll stick up for Charlie, though - sort of. The dead leaving Detroit one was kind of awesome. Though, that Weekly Standard piece he aided and abetted was kind of a horror show.

I don't think it's any disservice to your blog or my own to acknowledge that Detroit Blog is the best blog in Detroit. I'd rather read his pieces than nearly anything the dailies publish either.

He's one of the best journalists working in the city.
