    I wonder if they're going to help rebuild Detroit.










    better not tell keepitreal. you may inspire him.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

            The worst mayor? Try the worst city.  Detroit is like a big dump.  Since I live only 45 minutes away, I should know.  I've been there countless times and wouldn't want to go back, unless I have to.

              I heard the same thing about Detroit from a guy who moved from there to TN just to get away from there.

                    ineed9million:

                    I would like to wager $10 that you are wrong. If you agree, then the loser has to buy $20 worth of tickets and both the winner and loser split the winnings 50/50. The winner gets to choose which lottery the tickets will be purchased for (assumming the loser has easy access to buy the tickets).

                    The loser also sends a copy of the numbers played to the winner before the draw just to keep everything on the up and up.

                    Are you in?

                    Good luck,
                    Jake

                      I think if someone hit jackpot. Maybe they should help rebuild Detroit but wait till after super bowl 40 in Detroit. If you give said 50 millions of what you won if you hit jackpot. There other way to get the money back. From stocks, buying land...ect. If someone hit jackpot. They should maybe give money to fix the road. There a few dirt road that maybe should be fix.

                          I would have to disagree with that. Why on earth would I give $50 million to a city like Detroit to help rebuild it? When, in fact, it is supposed to be the city's problem and not mine? If the city doesn't care to help rebuild Detroit, why should I? If I did give $50 millions or more for my winnings, that would probably only be half of what the city needs. And with that much money donated, it wouldn't be enough to cover years down the road. You can help rebuild a city, but would it stay nice and clean? I highly doubt it.  The neighorhoods in Detroit are dangerous to be in and are full of crime, it wouldn't do any good to fix it. 

                          Detroit has been in the dumps for many, many years, burnt homes, borded up homes, unused buildings etc....... has never been fixed and will probably stay that way. Same for my city, too. Untill we get a real mayor actually wanting to help rebuild the city and having people help clean it up and keeping it that way, I won't donate any of my winnings. I would rather see my donation of $50 million dollars to help feed the children or to a better cause that will actually do some good.
