The only s#!%?y stuff you see on tv about Detroit is the corrupt city leaders and the crime in the neighborhoods. Downtown is a nice place.
I've never understood why but some people tend to paint with a broad brush. The state of New Jersey is a good example. It has long been the butt of unrelenting jokes by people who have only seen it from the northern part of the turnpike or who have not seen it at all.
It is a beautiful state as well as one of the richest.
