    Default Detroit adds to its endless list of tourist attractions

    http://www.detroitnews.com/article/2...text|FRONTPAGE

    A statue of a robotic cyborg from a movie set in Detroit's future is one step closer to having a present-day home.

    Hollywood robot statue designer Fred Barton's life-sized model of RoboCop is being scanned at a studio in Canada so it can be cast in bronze with otherworldly proportions.

    "The statue's definitely coming," said Jerry Paffendorf, who spearheaded the controversial 2011 campaign to raise money and find a home in Detroit for the statue.

    "The only thing that's up in the air is the timeline and where it's going to go."
    Fate is just the weight of circumstances.

    I don't share my thoughts because I think I might change the minds of those of opposing views, I share my thoughts to show those who share my views they are not alone.
