What I would like to see is for Detroit to make a spectacular comeback. There is plenty of potential there.

Is there an American city that could fall off the face of the earth and no one would miss it?

It doesn't have to be a city like Detroit. It can be anywhere in the US, like Branson MO, or for most of the people in this forum, Phoenix.

And now that I think about it, Chicago's pretty expendable too. We don't need a New York junior.
As if Indianapolis (or other areas in IN) are the prototypes of liveliness...the Colts have moved before, they can move again.
