‘We Almost Lost Detroit’

leave a comment »

In honor of John McCain’s visit earlier this week to the Fermi 1 reactor, here’s “We Almost Lost Detroit,” about, well, the day we almost lost Detroit.

There’s a live version from 1990 here. By Gil Scott-Heron, who also sang the controversial classic specifically requested for discussion by my class at [Undisclosed Location], “Whitey on the Moon.”
