    The city of Detroit is not broke! The City Government of Detroit is broke! The city of Detroit will become the model for urban centers across America.

    As an educated, well-travelled, creative and unconventional 30 something pinned under the shadow of a financial handicap and stigma of the same label as Detroit I look at myself in the mirror every morning and night and remind myself that I AM APART OF CREATING SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I promise you will hear much about those of us who have "failed" that system as we are tirelessly crafting new methodologies and possibilities toward our imminent disparate future. I am quite certain there is a scientific term that is used to classify organisms that exhibit such a process of development and diversification.
