We've already lamented some lame-o rankings for Detroit in 2011. Could things possibly be looking up in our listage positions this year? Not yet. Detroit was #2 on a list of America's worst-run cities which mentions that we had the highest rates of home vacancy rate, unemployment, and poverty, as well as the worst violent crime rate and the lowest median household income. What could be worse? Being one of those orange, over-tanned Miami residents, it would seem. So there you have it. Detroit: not fucking it up as badly as Miami, despite what you may have heard.
