I'm sitting here watching a show about old west gamblers and the numbers of deaths that resulted from cheating at cards,dice etc.
The narrator of the show said that it was more dangerous back then-- than it is in Detroit today
We were the murder capital a few years back--you could even buy t-shirts saying that--but to have the History channel say that is kind of a trip.

Isn't Detroit being 'served' by BATFE and the National Guard?

Not sure if they are or not TR. Nothing surprises me around this city.
Detroit just had an emergency financial manager installed the other day to try to fix the mess going on. They say it's the largest city ever taken over by any state in the US

So, are they going to change Detroit's name to 'Aces & Eights'?
