Welcome, Panther. There's a ton of fun people here and one or two old grouches. On occasion, sometimes I am one of the old grouches.:-) :-(

For the new folks, I would like to direct your attention to the FSC - Forum Social Club. It starts at 8:00pm on Thursdays. Pay attention to the "Connect" forum and there will be a thread to tell you where it will be.

I'm fairly new and never introduced myself - I'm Tracy. In the process of moving to Detroit right now. I've been crazy about this city as long as I can remember! As messed up as it is, it has so much charm in my eyes.

Welcome to the forum all. Jump right in and share your thoughts. Roll with the occasional wisecracks and don't let them get to you. [We'll take care of the nasty ones.]

Remember that nothing beats a sense of humor when it comes to defusing a little tension. Our dear recently departed ItsJeff was just such a master of good humor repartee and made everybody feel welcome and important, as you are.

I'm also fairly new. I'm lmr, and I ran into this site while searching for information on some of the old schools in Detroit.
I was born and raised in Wyandotte but I've lived in Minnesota (moved here for a job) for the last 23 years. Still have many relatives in Michigan though and a long family history there.

Let's get another thing straight.....

I have manners and I'm not about to be overshadowed by some impolite old head. Now, I SPEAK FOR DABIRCH, Welcome to the DetroitYes Forum, I hope you enjoy your experience on the site.

Hold on. Not so fast.

Before I welcome anybody, I want to know who I'm dealing with. So, Panther036, Detblue. Dustbin89 and Lovelyd, answer under oath the following questions.

1. IQ?

2. Net annual income?

3. Member of Preservation Wayne?

4. Work for the DEGC?

5. Anything prettier or more fascinating than a demolision contractor at work?

6. PhD in Urban Planning? Can spell "urban planning" correctly without looking it up? Feel that anybody who has a window to look out of, a AAA map, and knows the top ten u-p buzzwords can pass oneself off as one? Has ever met a wealthy urban planner who got rich telling real estate developers what to do?

7. Ever go to a meeting of the Land Use Institute?

8. Think the Common Council members are smart, dedicated, financially savvy and all around just peachy?

9. Work for Ilitch?

10. An Ilitch relative?

11. Live in a far north suburb?

12. Ever even driven through Livonia?

13. If the answer to 12 above is "yes," did you think it looked like a great place to live and raise kids?

14. Think a very deep hole in the ground would be better than Tiger Stadium standing there disintegrating before our eyes?

15. Think well landscaped and paved parking lots look great just about anywhere?

16. But, not as appealing as a parking structure not cluttered with 1st floor retail?

17. Think we on this forum should have more input into what Ilitch does than he does?

18. Expressways have been Detroit's salvation and without them we'd be in far worse shape?

19. Think M-59 has just the right amount of shopping and probably doesn't need more than a couple more shopping centers?

20. Finally, wanna buy some downtown Detroit real estate?

Remember, answers under oath.

Y'all are going to love it I'm sure if you answer correctly. Especially, # 20 above.
