Using Golf as a Conduit to Tell a Story – Golfing Detroit

This week’s Fall Through the Cracks Friday is a unique journalistic approach to showing the state of the city of Detroit (a city that this PLUS blogger really loves).

Certainly much has been made over the years of Detroit’s decline. From plans to reduce the overall size of the city to its well-documented decline (even in the U.K.), most folks are aware of the dire state of Detroit.

In this week’s featured video, a Pulitzer Prize winning author and media personality approaches the story of Detroit from a different angle – by golfing the entire length of the city. What follows is a tragic, heart warming, funny, and scathing look at this once proud city. Plus, it is likely the longest golf hole you’ll ever see – par 3,168.

Happy Friday!
