Thanks to The Bell Towers, I had the opportunity to join a group of bloggers in Detroit, MI a couple of weeks ago. The project was organized by the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity and took us to see a vision of Detroit that the media rarely talk about: the possible revival of Motown.
I will be posting about my experience at The Bell Towers over the next two weeks. The first post was published yesterday:

This may come as a surprise, but my first impression of Detroit was good. It was not thanks to the government but to free enterprise and the hard work and aspirations to a better life of individual Detroiters. My first experience, and a few others after that, let me see glimpses of hope for Detroit.
