In the almost brutish melee that we call the American political system, this particular presidential race has been nothing short of controversial, engaging, and entertaining.

The most recent televised political event was the Democratic Primary debate.
Too often in the media’s portrayal of Detroit are we bombarded with images of decay, blight and despair. Images of entire neighborhoods, rotting and dilapidated, with homes charred and festering from neglect and arson have become the norm.
