In Detroit, A Tale of Two Dodges
Just ahead of the presidential primaries in Michigan, Marketplace hit two parts of Detroit to find out how people were feeling about the economy.

Then we traveled north to the birthplace of Horace Dodge, Grosse Point, a tony suburb of Detroit right on the sapphire-blue waters of Lake St. Clair. Only miles apart in distance, the realities of both places couldn't be further apart.
