First: Can I still post things here, even though I'm a measly alumna? Oh well, I guess I'm the admin, so I can. :)
Second: Have you ever gone to walkscore.com and found that the area you put in has a MUCH higher score than you know it should? They are trying hard to fix that. http://blog.walkscore.com/2010/08/street-smart-walk-score/
Third: Have a great start to the academic year and don't hesititate to contact me if you're in the area or have a question about Detroit.
