BTW, anyone know the title of the 'sculpture' on Michigan/Brady that looks like a building falling apart with birds pooping all over it???

More garbage bought and paid for with our tax dollars. This stuff is far from art, and only serves the purpose of convincing oreilly and his appointees Dearborn is hip. Oreilly and company has been trying to convince Michigan, Dearborn is Royal Oak. Our home values convince me we are the next Detroit. No money for to keep snow branch open, but the mayor can find city money and resources to fund development authorities that are complete failures
