Detroit 300 intro 

What could we bring to the party? It’s a question we here at the Metro Times wrestled with for months. Detroit was about to celebrate its tercentennial, and we had to do something special — but what? After much discussion, we decided that a collection of thoughts and images would make a fine gift. Recollections and reflections about this town of ours, what we’ve seen and done and learned here, and how these experiences have affected us. And in doing that, we came to realize that this city — with all of its strengths, and all of its struggles — has given each of us much more than we could ever provide in return. Best wishes, and many happy returns.
