25 HOURS, 15 MINUTES, 45 SECONDS Detroit is in the limelight. Nationally. Internationally. Few cities fuel a more remarkable abundance of conflicting and evocative representations. And few cities harness the paradoxical contemporary fascination with tactical opportunism and inexorable ruination with more noticeable panache.
