One of my friends, Jeff Wattrick, wrote a piece for M-Live.com entitled "Chicago, if you had a tenth of the heart of Detroit, you'd be New York City by now."
The premise of his essay is rather obvious. I also think it's true. Of course, one can also point out that if Detroit had Chicago's political leadership (i.e., they may be corrupt, but they get stuff done) then Detroit would be New York, Los Angeles, London, and Toronto - all rolled into one bad ass urban Mecca.
Although, the Detroit Lions would probably still suck regardless.
