Of course we agree, they are different.
In Detroit's case, it's not simply a 50 mile drive. "No one" really lives in Detroit anymore. Anybody with any sense got out by now and suburban Detroit is where the population is and it's encroaching upon Ann Arbor. Heck, the airport is midway between the two. And we know when guys like Gary Moeller go to party, he goes to Detroit...
