The reason I am posting this is because I believe that getting positive media from statewide media is much more important than nation wide media. If we get more people from around the state to look at the great developments in the city and to not look at the city so poorly we can make it a much more popular destination. I would love to see more people from Saginaw, Kzoo, Grand Rapids, and other areas visit Detroit and embrace it.

Anyway im done with my ranting here is the link

Lansing's has usually always been kind to Detroit in our local media, and overall feeling. Actually, a sizeable group of citizens here are former Detroiter's or Chicagoans, or have family based their. I've always felt that the place has had a lot more connection to southeast Michigan than to any other part of the state, especially since we share the same economy. I've always thought of Flint, Lansing, and Detroit always been pretty similar in more ways than one.

I've seen a couple of stories from local media similar this. The tone is largely cautiously optimistic. To me that's a good thing. That means they're impressed by what they see happening but still are cautious because this is Detroit afterall. That's good. It's a solid step forward. It's local people giving the city a real chance. That's half of what the metro area needs. The other half is people willing to capitalize on it.
