Ohio is awful
This has kind of been a long time coming for me, but I just accepted an offer to come work for an advertising agency in Dearborn, and I will be moving to Detroit from Cleveland. I'm from Michigan originally, but have never lived in southeast Michigan. I was wondering if anyone who lives in the area could give advice on where to live, any nice apartments, etc.
I've been strongly considering moving downtown. I've looked at a couple apartments that look pretty cool, and it might be fun to have a downtown lifestyle. However, I don't want to get stabbed.
I've also considered Ann Arbor, but I'm not sure how much I would enjoy the commute from AA to Dearborn everyday on 94.
Anyways, thanks in advance for any tips or advice you can give. They are greatly appreciated.
A homeless man was set ablaze by a taser after the police chased him down for sniffing an aerosol container and the man struggled. I found this too hilarious not to share.

It was mentioned in a thread earlier today that Chad Smith, the drummer for the Chili Peppers, is from Michigan and that during a 2006 show they sang the Victors in Columbus. I did a lot of searching and was finally able to find a recording of the show (that worked). It doesn't quite live up to my expectations but its still funny.
The whole thing is split up over these files, just jump towards the end of the first one to get to the good stuff.
Then thanks to jg2112, http://www.dispatch.com/live/contentbe/dispatch/2006/11/03/20061103-F3-0...
