spend a semester in detroit...what could possibly go wrong?

The stars certainly aligned on this one. If I were to make a list of the top 5 things I love in life, the University of Michigan, Detroit, and street walking disease infested crack head (preferably post-op) tranny (but I'll settle for pre-op if they have soft hands) hookers would certainly be on it. Who knew U of M was catering solely to me with one of their latest course offerings?
Synthesized under the guidance of Professor Stephen Ward, who teaches in the Residential College and Center for Afro-American and African Studies, Semester in Detroit began developing during his course, “Urban and Community Studies.” The University of Michigan had recently begun a Semester in Washington program, adding to a number of off-site University programs which made students ask, “Why not have a Semester in Detroit?”
Keep this in mind - you can pretty much fucking see Detroit from Ann Arbor. It's 40 miles due East. It should come as no surprise that the same University that offers - English 317: How to be Gay: Male Homosexuality and Initiation (I'll wait while you read that course description) offers a semester in Detroit. What an interesting question though: Why not have a Semester in Detroit? Oh....I can think of a few reasons, starting with the fact that you could confuse Detroit with downtown Beiruit...but I think the opening sentence in the Detroit Free Press column on the new course sums it up best:
As it turns out, the gap between a 20-year-old art student from the suburbs and the five women who sold sex on Detroit's streets was no wider than the heavy wooden table between them.
I can only hope that this means the whores convinced her to leave school and start turning tricks. Honestly, I can only imagine with the current auto industry turmoil there isn't a heavy influx of working girls heading to d-town. If there's one thing that city needs is some fresh street walkers to pick up everyone's spirits. Yet another reason to love U of M: giving back to the community - one trick at a time. Space Bitches....Space.
