Downtown Detroit from Comerica Park

(Detroit, MI) The accompanying image of downtown Detroit was recently taken from a Comerica Park suite on the third base line. None of the city's financial and demographic struggles are evident in the photo, and a casual glance might lead a viewer to the mistaken belief that Detroit is still a bustling industrial mecca in the American Midwest.

Yet even a Southpark dentist offering free crowns and $5 root canals would probably still struggle in Detroit. The city will always be "home" to me, but every time I return to the Motor City I feel more and more like an outsider.

May Detroit one day recover from its woes.
