Mitch Albom on the Charlie Rose show lamenting about his dying town of Detroit and the automobile industry. We here in Ohio feel or will feel their pain with industry shutting or moving. Cleveland has very little downtown now. Here in my hometown, we have a General Motors plant that is losing people, and is on the endangered list for sometime this year of closing completely. What this will do to my town which is already distressed from industry disappearing over the years and our tax base dwindling, causing our infrastructure to decay along with empty houses and the rest of the rust belt nation syndrome of despair? It is a question with a dim prognoses as an answer.
