Golfing The Length Of Detroit

Stephen Dubner posted this video, about a reporter (Charlie LeDuff) who literally golfs the length of Detroit, on the Freakonomics blog and asks-

“Is it a) one of the most interesting pieces of reporting you’ll ever see? b) a kind of cultural criticism that almost never shows up in mainstream journalism? c) a golfing adventure that even the most adventuresome golfers have never considered?


Detroit is such a great, interesting piece of America and it’s continuously on the precipice of renaissance or mad max thunderdome-ness. This video is an ingenious, wacky call (plea) to greatness.
