I just happened to catch this earlier on cable.
I can't decide if I like it or not.

Ya whats this guys agenda? Seemed to be a bit one sided if you ask me, Luis Aguilar seemed to be a bit negative too, kinda funny how hes spending time downtown at starbucks and on the other hand fails to mention thats its located below a new condo developement in the city? Sure this guy drives a honda or toyota!

They show the Book Cadillac as an example of an abandoned building but fail to mention its being renovated.

This is two different perspectives.
In 2000 Downtown Detroit really was just horrible, I even felt unsafe sometimes walking around downtown. Since I dont normally live in Detroit and come back once a year I get to see the transformation, and it seems that downtown detroit seems to be transforming into a young urban hub.
There stills needs to be some more high paying jobs to enter the market, but I really do see Downtown Detroit turning into a viable hub of Michigan in the next 10 years.

I don't know.
The odd thing is, on the website, this is portrayed as a positive piece. Sort of like "the decline of a great city leads us back to nature."
I couldn't help but crack up as they stood there trying to coax out the pheasant, but the hawk circling overhead was just a little to close to the image of a vulture waiting for an animal (Detroit?) to die so that it could feed off of the dead body.
Again, I can't figure out the real point of the clip...if there is one.
