Why, Detroit is Lovely

What’s all this talk about Detroit in decay? My daughter and son-in-law took me there for my birthday last year and it was lovely. First we went to an elegant restaurant, Mario’s. David drove right to the door and a nice young man parked our car for us. When it was time for the opera, a van transported us directly from the restaurant door to the Opera House entrance. The van met us at the conclusion of the opera and returned us to Mario’s where, after desert and dancing, the nice young man brought us our car.  No poverty, no abandoned neighborhoods, nothing dirty or distressing. Detroit was beautiful. Delicious food served elegantly. Good French wine. A delightful performance of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Opera House with crystal chandeliers and gilded ceilings. Live Motown for dancing. So why are people concerned about Detroit conditions? All you need is valet parking, tickets to the opera, money for a fine restaurant—and blinders to wear as you drive in and out of the city.
