Strong NYTimes Mag essay today by Made in Detroit memoirist.
Inside the [New Palace] bakery, we felt safe from filming. Then the [Fox TYV-2] cameraman and reporter walked in. Before the segment began, the reporter joked that if you didn’t want to be on TV, now was the time to leave. The implication was that some people might get caught playing hooky from work. This was optimistic, since it presumed people had jobs to play hooky from.
. . . The church calendar and our checkbooks agreed that it was time, starting tomorrow, to give something up, to get by on less. For today, though, we would pretend that we were flush, that the lean times hadn’t started yet and that they would last just 40 days.

Don't think I've ever seen so many articles about Detroit in the national press. There seems to be one popping up every week, particularly in the NY Times.

Yeah the NY Times has been running great articles about Detroit all year, it seems.
