When I'm asked, I tell people I'm from Detroit. While I don't live in the city limits, I live close enough that I want to be identified by Detroit and its heritage of hard working people and cultural diversity.
So when the Chrysler Group coined the term "Imported from Detroit," I got it. I didn't even work for the automaker at the time. I was working at the Detroit ABC affiliate as a TV News Producer.

"Spring Back to Vail" marked the closing of the ski season in the high land of Colorado. Ashley and I were lucky enough to bid “good-bye to winter” in the land of blue sky and fresh air.
As the trip began, one could not help to believe that the menacing moon dealt us a mean hand of cards, and time was never on our side. Nonetheless, equipped in a Jeep® Liberty we were ready for any set of challenges before us. It was a good thing that too, because we dodged avalanche blasts, intermittent hailstorms, and a heard...
