    Motor City Files for Bankruptcy

    Detroit filed for the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history Thursday after steep population and tax base declines sent it tumbling toward insolvency.

    The filing by a state-appointed emergency manager means that if the bankruptcy filing is approved, city assets could be liquidated to satisfy demands for payment.

    I doubt it. Detroit has been struggling for years and it hasn't impacted the Wolverine home games.

    If you have money it may be time to buy land in downtown Detroit. You can get it cheap. Unfortunately, I don't think it will be worth much until decades from now, so you may have to sit on it a while.
