      The “tourists” are now from Benton Harbor,Flint,Detroit and Chicago.Tourists sounds better than gangbangers though.By the way,the “tourists” are sticking around and moving into these areas.Get used to this–or getting even worse until the philosophy of creating areas for these people is changed.Does Grand Rapids want slum housing?Or nice neighborhoods with new housing and people with jobs that can afford it.Bliss–it’s your call–and I have my doubts that you’ll make the right choice.
