“i love walking down the street and seeing faces
and drama and happiness and sadness and dirt and cleanliness.”
detroit looks pretty good for being 320 years old
“there are cities that get by on their good looks, offer climate and scenery, views of mountains or oceans, rockbound or with palm trees. and there are cities like detroit that have to work for a living.”
*note – (elmore was a prolific american author/screenwriter who lived in the detroit area, where i grew up.
my father resembled elmore in his later years, was frequently mistaken for him,
and signed autographs upon request)
