Detroit-erdam

Could Detroit be the new Amsterdam -- a city where prostitution and marijuana are both legalized to help attract young people and turn the troubled city’s prospects around?
Why not, barrister and occasional mayoral candidate Geoffrey Fieger said during a taping of “Michigan Matters” on what he would do if he walked in Detroit Mayor Dave Bing’s shoes and tried to address the city’s woes.

 Interesting idea, but what caught my attention was the following quote: "We would attract young people,” Fieger said. “You make Detroit a fun city. A place they want to live and they would flock here.”

Yeah I did a double take, he said flock.
