The Detroit fire department was swamped and stressed because they didn't know if there was anyone inside these buildings and were endangering their fire fighters. They were pushing the city to destroy lots of these places for that very reason.

So that's my hearsay and I am sticking to it!

The city does demo buildings around town, but they just can't keep up. I work as a HUD housing inspector so I'm in these neighborhoods damn near every day. There are blocks and blocks of empty/ burnt out homes. It's very "third world"..

You must have this one:

And a Living Ghost Town....

If a physical fact can produce a psychological state, a psychological state can produce a physical fact... The whole of creation is asleep within the deep of man and is awakened to objective existence by his subconscious assumptions.
