Ruin Porn Products: Presidential Tours

New, 14 comments

Obama's in town for fundraisers today and the anonymous Detroit News Editorial writers want to steal him from the 'burbs and take him on a ruin porn tour. Awesome! Train station and BBQ? Unfortunately not. This tour sounds like it sucks. "The president should see with his own eyes, and from ground level, the depth and disrepair, abandonment and danger in Detroit's neighborhoods... We can only imagine that he would summon the full force of his administration to get creative in seeking ways Washington could help stimulate a community revival in Detroit and, for that matter, other industrial cities that suffer from urban decay." Gross. Who wants to look at that? Obama is married to Michelle and therefore likes things that are pretty. Someone page Phil Cooley. [The Detroit News]
