    Honestly, I looked, but other hot weather babes have not yet had much to say about Matthew. Maybe as it approaches S. Florida.

    Yep. It's a serious situation, but the track won't be set until Sunday. Here's hoping it rips itself apart and curls away quickly (though that is looking unlikely). Regardless, I figured I would post another weatherbabe since I inadvertently steered the thread in that direction.

    Literally none of those photos shows her naked elbows. Did you stalk around for more photos before deciding she doesn't fit your elbow fetish? This place is getting way too weird.

    So a Category 4 Hurricane is slowly meandering around the Caribbean and deciding whether or not to strike Florida. Same name as my ex-husband, striking right around my wedding anniversary. Honestly, more worried for people up the coast with the flooding already in place if this hugs the coast, but the northward turn is entirely based on the notion that the jet stream will take a prolonged vacation in the Yucatan (among other steering factors). They've been predicting that dip and much cooler temperatures for a week now.

    Dary replied to a thread Detroit, Detroit... in Open Discussion
    Lest I repeat myself... The reason that I responded to this thread is that there have been plenty of other threads posted here about Detroit and how bad it is. Then I see another thread, one that has the same vid as other threads, going on about how bad it is here. I begin to think that it looks more like bashing Detroit than anything else. So I say something about it. Now I'm told that I'm making personal attacks on Osan and RPF members in general? Please.

    You should get them to change the OP, then. And you should reread AF's post and my post. We were discussing reparations, and how if someone is going to go with the simplistic view that "the whites" owe "the blacks" money for past crimes relating to slavery, then it should cancel out because "the whites" are the reason there are no longer "black" slaves in the US. It was a tongue in cheek thing, but you've been twisting it over twenty times to Tuesday until you're convinced I'm saying slavery was okay and rapists should be rewarded. Reparations --- as in the stuff the original post is about --- are people who do not hold slaves having to pay people who have never been slaves, due to the sins of their ancestors. In most cases you're not even going to be able to reliably prove bloodlines. Moreover, there are groups who say ALL darker-skinned people suffer at the hands of the lighter-skinned due to the echos of slavery, so they are all owed reparations, regardless of their history. It's ridiculous. What would I do to someone who repeatedly raped me, tortured me, and held me against my will? I would count myself particularly lucky and clever to have gotten away, make sure that it isn't going to happen again, and disappear to multiple places at once so I'm never found.

    There aren't any old burned out buildings in the town I live in. Those get torn down before they get that far. Detroit has a specific history as an industrial hub and now it's simply not that hub at all. The improvements you've listed are largely superficial projects or tax fund money pits that have a positive and shiny effect on the areas immediately around them. There might be some long term resettlement that establishes a real upward trend in lifestyle and standard of living, but plopping a revamped stadium into a huge city is not going to do it. You are simply not paying attention if you think Detroit is the only big city to be pointed out as having extensive problems. You've never seen people speak about Baltimore here? LA? NYC? Chicago? Atlanta? Dallas? DC? And no, I don't want to go to Detroit. I've been there a couple of times, and I'm not interested in returning for any reason. It was years ago but nothing drives me to go back. That's kind of the problem, isn't it. It's a personal decision on my part --- I tend to love certain temperatures, a certain amount of wilderness, a good amount of space, a lack of crowding whenever I want to get away --- but obviously others have come to similar conclusions for their own reasons. I would rather invest, build, teach, and help around where I already want to live.

    No, imagine that your great-grandfather did those things to my great-grandmother and you suddenly decided to pay for my kids' college tuition. That would be a much better analogy. Now imagine someone felt a need to legislate that you pay for the college tuition for any kids I might have because of your great-grandfather's actions (which cannot be directly proven and which were performed by someone you never even met). Oh and don't presume what I'd do in that situation. You've also developed amnesia as well as changed your entire style, syntax, and viewpoints.

    They will be super excited to learn that the Highland Clearances were an exciting, entirely voluntary process that boils down to "fleeing famine." As for the "paying the price and being released," black slaves could also buy their own freedom, so by your earlier logic they were also not slaves because they could purchase themselves. Why not own them outright and be done with the charade of making them think they can purchase themselves from their masters? It was a carrot that could be dangled. How many people actually bought out their contracts or their families? How many, after doing so, prospered? It was the slimmest, barest chance. The superficial view of history is that all blacks were in fetters with criss-crossing whip marks all the way up until the Proclamation, then they were suddenly free and everything rolled on with consistent and unified toil to where they are today. I don't understand how that's not insulting to all parties involved, but you seem to have bought in. Coffin ships had a death rate of a little under 30% of their passengers. They were often shut down below without proper ventilation, particularly in storms. They were not tended to when ill. When they died, they were heaved overboard for the sharks. Slave ships had a death rate of approximately 15-30% depending on where you look, as they sailed across the Middle Passage. There were whips and chains but the rest of what I wrote above also applies.

    Good point. If we're going to regress to the oversimplified version of "all slaves were black, and all black people today suffer the echos of black slavery in the USA," then we should remedy it with "Lincoln and other whites freed the slaves and passed the legislation that restored all of those rights that were revoked by their forefathers." Neither is true, but they do kind of cancel out in a stupid way.

    Never is a long time. Unless you have a crystal ball, how do you know? Have any of the posters who have made these negative posts about Detroit done anything to help the city? Seems to me like there are a lot of haters with the number of threads criticizing Detroit, but they offer no help. The haters don't want to come here, they don't want to invest, build, teach and help. They would rather sit behind their keyboards and talk shit. The people that live in Detroit City have a special expression reserved just for the haters.

    These "facts" have been "stated" repeatedly on RPF. After a while it tends to get old. Instead of simply stating facts, it just seems more and more like simply bashing. Your criticisms of NYC are the first that I've ever seen on this site other than those of Detroit and why didn't you post those to begin with? Instead you posted an old vid criticizing Detroit.

    Without a doubt. It's an old city that went through some extremely difficult times. The same can be said though for many cities in the U.S. This is a pretty good link describing some of what is happening in the city now: http://www.traditionalbuilding.com/detroits-historic-buildings/

For anyone reading the thread who hasn't seen anything but these negative threads about Detroit, google image The Fisher Building, The Guardian Building, The Penobscot Building. I guess I just got pissed off at all the negative threads that have been posted about Detroit.

    There is definitely a re-birth going on in some places in the city. The new Red Wings stadium and the surrounding 52 blocks are under going a huge renovation. Everything is being replaced, sewers, electrical, streets, lights, new housing and shopping. Comerica Park where the Tigers play is a beautiful stadium. The Fox theater, the Fillmore, the Fisher building/theater are all gorgeous. There is so much history and culture that still exists in the city like The Guardian Building, The Detroit Institute of Arts. I could go on.
