Remember when Detroit raised $50,000 in 5 days for a Robocop statue? Well Jerry Paffendorf does (it was an atom bomb going off in his life!) and he updates MSNBC on where our beloved new icon is (still being made). If you are still wondering, why a Robocop statue and not something more "straightforwardly Detroit positive symbolic whatever?" the answer is free democracy, or twitter rocks, or something like that.
