Detroit and Michigan are in the midst of an economic tsunami. The populace is filled with despair and anger.
As this was happening I heard on the radio "Blood and Roses" by the Smithereens, one of the best rock bands of all time. I thought of the movie "Smithereens," an overlooked masterpiece from the early 1980's.
Detroit is in smithereens.
What escape is there when the world collapses but to plunge into art?
