Dying cities

Three Michigan cities made Newsweek's list America's Dying Cites: G.rap #10, Flint #9, and Detroit #7. Newsweek's list stings a little bit, but it's important to keep in mind their ranking was based only on percentage decline in population between 2000 and 2010. While declining population can certainly contribute to a city dying, it doesn't really capture the big picture of life in that city. Case in point: Pittsburgh, Forbes 2010 most livable city in US, beat all the cities in Michigan earning the number six spot on the list.
