The number one problem with Detroit is that they don't know who owns what because deeds and other land records were obviously poorly kept over the years. I understand RR's reluctance.
+ and the city is broken and broke. I think this is a great opportunity for the Feds to offer good loans for bad properties and encourage people to come back to Detroit, like they did in New Orleans. Unfortunately, until te auto industry is booming, this is the way things will be.
They do not want black people to come back to Detroit. Wait and see how this falls. Quiet is kept, white people have scooped up MANY properties in the city to include people from Europe.
