Are you suggesting the DIA sell their collection to the British?

Is Detroit going to lose the naming rights to the river?

Who knows? Maybe it will become the "Windsor River" because of this.

Thank ALEC for installing an Emergency Manager that did everything to put Detroit in this exact situation.  Others may have put them in a bad place, but (a very ALEC-friendly) Emergency Manager named Kevyn "Judas" Orr made the final decisions for Detroit's current situation.

If you want to blame anyone, look towards the Mackinac Institute and ALEC for taking over the state so that they could score some trophies along the way.  They made sure that Detroit was going to die their way and that they would kill the city so that it would be remade in its own image, constituencies be farked!

The only response from the City of Detroit towards the ill influence of ALEC and the like would be to instruct all city employees to consider them as hostile entities, and to return Kevyn to his master in Lansing.
