    That's not fair. They selected the worst pictures of Detroit and the best of Hiro.

    For instance, here is a picture of Hiro's Industrial Promotion Hall as is today:



    Comapare to some of the better pictures of Detroit:







    See? Look at all that nice grass Detroit has. Hiro just has shrubs and overgrowth.

    (I really did try to find some nice pictures of Detroit....)

    Detroit was hit by a terrible-economic-policy bomb.
    "Anarchists oppose the State because it has its very being in such aggression, namely, the expropriation of private property through taxation, the coercive exclusion of other providers of defense service from its territory, and all of the other depredations and coercions that are built upon these twin foci of invasions of individual rights." -Murray Rothbard

    So what did happen to all the radiation that was supposed to last for thousands of years?

    Sshhh!! We're not supposed to talk about that. At least, that is the impression I get, since I've never recalled seeing these images of a reborn Hiroshima again in our media, nor any discussions of how high (or low) the current radiation levels are.

    I randomly picked an area of Detroit on google maps, as you drill down you can see nice green spots where houses used to be

    Insanity should be defined as trusting the government to solve a problem they caused in the first place. Please do not go insane!
