Oh yeah? Take that, Newsweek!

Some years ago, in that dismissive tone so beloved of some media, Newsweek  named Grand Rapids MI, a ‘dying city’. The folks there didn’t much like that and responded with a word or two of their own (actually, of Don McClean’s).

Roger Ebert called it “the greatest music video ever made’.  Anyway, happy Sunday morning comrades.
