The “D” Spot is all about Detroit as seen through the ever-watchful eyes of two Detroiters – husband and wife – who have experienced their city in very different ways. One is a transplant from the Wild West.  The other is a native, born and raised.  Both are committed to offering their observations and experiences as  their own personal and heartfelt contribution toward the revitalization of a great city through balanced commentary and public reflection designed to shine their own little light on the “strange beautiful” that is Detroit, and occasionally other issues and areas that attract our attention. It is their hope that this light will help to clear away at least a portion of the encrusted debris that has for so long been mistaken for the Motor City truth  trapped beneath.
