Someone would have to stay behind to turn off the lights.
Poor Detroit. They're an easy target. I truly do wish that city a prosperous future, but it's going to be a long, tough road.

Oh I'm 100% with you. I wish nothing but the best for Detroit...however I'm just skeptical they will ever turn it around, let alone return to their former glory.

This is true. Hopefully, it will spur economic growth, but the best idea they can come up with for the promotional videos is that someone in Suburban Chicago can go watch a White Sox game in Detroit without having to drive:

Surprised that Philly is winning and very little commentary, why all the Detroit bashing, any city hit as hard by economic conditions would have similar issues, in many ways the city has a lot of room to improve.

Why are you surprised? Philly is a great city. A little parochial but still great.

I lwould choose ATL for the following advantages:

1. milder weather
2. quickly emerging as an international city with plenty to do
3. the attractions in the area and around Georgia itself

Also, Detroit's skyline is just old and fugly. Philadelphia's is larger with a more modern metropolitan feel. And Atlanta's is just downtright modern, big and growing. Period.
