Wither the Detroit Outsider?

The Detroit Outsider has returned. Occasionally the D.O. will have to go dark, but the timing and duration of this hiatus has been unfortunate. There are reasons the Outsider was gone for two months and returns now. They include one or more of the following.

  • The D.O. was involved in complex real-estate proceedings.
  • The Outsider has given up sloth for lent.
  • The Outsider's real job is even more covert than this one and cannot be divulged. He can't even tell his wife.
  • The Outsider's real job is that of a contractor, and this site is merely the alternate universe to which he occasionally vanishes when he's supposed to be finishing your kitchen.
Much has transpired in the world and the economy, but precious little has been accomplished in Detroit. I shall return soon to discuss the state of the auto industry and its prospects. It's good to be back.
