Earlier this year, Newsweek Magazine ran a piece entitled "America's Dying Cities..." One of the cities it named was Grand Rapids, Michigan, which came in at number ten on their list,
Madison, Wisconsin originally, I normally would not mind the national media engaging in a bit of Michigan bashing, but this seemed to be hitting below the belt.
Many cities in the U.S. are struggling to recover from the recession , but to label a city as "dying" is a bit much.
The good people of Grand Rapids seem to agree. They responded to Newsweek's death notice for their city with the following video.
Now I know lots of people who really hate this song, (I'm not none of them, but I will grant that is one of those tunes that should be forever banned in Karaoke bars..) But you have to give props to the folks in Grand Rapids. The video is brilliant....
