Beauty in the Decay

Ask me anything   My blog is a celebration of art, culture, of the city of Detroit, and the world at large. And whatever else catches my fancy. I am in the final draft of my memoir of the two months I spend traveling "hard-seat-style" through China in 1988. It's kind of exciting, really.

A small independent bus company in Detroit got national attention Wednesday morning from The Today Show.
The Detroit Bus Co. and owner Andy Didorsi were featured by Bob Dobson’s “Today’s American Story.” Dotson shared how Didorsi created his company and now helps drive children to after-school activities in Southwest Detroit. Using an app and trackers on the buses, Dotson said two Detroit Bus Co. buses can do the work of 20.

Andy Didorsi for Mayor in 2020!
