The Future Of Detroit

Amid the news from Detroit this morning, comes word that President Obama has appointed Edward Montgomery, an economist and former Labor Department deputy secretary, to the position of Director of Recovery for Auto Communities and Workers. His job will be to help autoworkers, communities and regions adversely impacted by the failure of the automakers find new jobs, businesses and industries. Sounds like a tough gig. Anyone have any suggestions?
