This is it.

The last episode of our second season of PARTS UNKNOWN.
And I’m glad it’s set in Detroit. Because Detroit, for many Americans, is an abstraction—truly, if incredibly, a part unknown.

One only need look at some of our representatives who, a while back, were actually suggesting…

If you know or have ever met somebody from the Detroit area who is insanely proud of it and you wondered why…well, now you know.

One of the best pieces written about Detroit in the past three years. Thank you Anthony for telling it straight and for not doing yet another hatchet job on our city. It was honest and real, but also hopeful. Just like #Detroit. And you get extra points for quoting the MC5 and slipping in an “MF later” in the article. Well played.
