Eastern Market is pretty cool too even though it has nothing to do with education or illiteracy. For the people that don't think we should nuke the city do something productive about it http://believeindetroit.org/#s

I guess me and cobra are the only people that live in metro Detroit so we have to fight against all you other non-nice individuals. This is for the city of Detroit, the majority (by A LOT)of people live in the suburbs just like any other major metro area. Our not so nice inner city areas make the rest of the world think it's hell on earth, try learning something so you don`t look so damn ignorant this is a good place to start http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detroit this should tell you everything you don`t know click on the drating links to learn things like: Wayne State is the largest single campus medical school in the country and "Metro Detroit has made Michigan`s economy a leader in information technology, biotechnology, and advanced manufacturing; Michigan ranks fourth nationally in high tech employment with 568,000 high tech workers, including 70,000 in the automotive industry. The minority (Detroit)

Actually that sort of explains why some folks seem to be permanently in "text speak" (brb, lol, b4u, l8tr, etc). With auto correct features and a declining literacy, they may honestly not know how to spell or read the words and ideas they're attempting to convey.

Here all this time I had written it off as laziness.

This is a very sad situation, I would feel sorry for those who cant read very well, that means more than likely you wont be able to advance in life to the next level, like get a much better paying job or further your education..this is sad indeed..that would be a very horrible situation..that means there must be alot of poor people in detroit who are also on welfare, sucking up government funds by getting a free monthly check and food stamps..and government funded health care..(medical card)....and section 8 housing...when these things are just handed over to them, It's just easier to give up ,and get comfortable with their current situation and status in life,when these people breed and have children, this vicious cycle is started all over again.....

I appologize if that sounds mean, and don`t get me wrong Iam not saying this is the #1 reason for the illiteracy, just one to probably a whole list of problems with Detroit...
