It's AMAZING how that worked out!

Sometimes a picture is worth 10,000 words.  Today I was transiting the Detroit River from North to South.  First I passed the City and Renaissance Center with it’s proud Government Motors (sigh) sign.  Then down past the River Rouge plant, at least at one time the largest steel plant in the world.  Of course “lakers” full of iron ore have been passing me in my travels on Lake Huron.  So it clicked.  Detroit builds cars.  Cars take lots of steel – not so much now as before, but still a lot.  Steel takes iron ore and coal.  Isn’t it just amazing how that all worked out?
