Freakonomics: “Census data released this week confirmed what we already knew: Detroit is dying. It’s just happening much faster than we thought. From 2000 to 2010, Detroit lost a quarter of its population; 273,500 people. According to news reports, local officials are stunned, including Mayor Dave Bing, who wants a recount.”

Really sad news, and yes, I’m still taken with Detroit.

Why? I have no idea.
