Mission Statement:
To document the city in an attempt to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the uniqueness of Detroit, her buildings, and her people.

It would appear former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is on Santa's "Shit List".
The City Motto:
Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus.
We hope for better things; it will arise from the ashes. The motto was written by Father Gabriel Richard after a fire destroyed the city in 1805.

And to think the list used to be headed "Naughty". You think Kwame will still get a lump of coal?

Well spotted and framed - the foreground Santa adds a lot to the composition IMO :-)
