What Happened To Detroit?

IMG_5145When Kish and I visited Russell in Detroit several months ago, my overwhelming reaction to the terrible conditions that can be found there was: “How the hell did this happen?” Now there is a documentary, called Bankrupt, that apparently will attempt to answer that question. The film will be released this month, and you can view the trailer at the link above.

All documentaries are filmed from a point of view, of course, and it looks like this one will be no different. I’d gladly review explanations of this civic disaster from every point on the political spectrum, however, if they could help us to understand how this happened — and what we can do to prevent it from ever happening again.
