Mere days after the above Eminem-fueled Super Bowl commercial led to the most goodwill the American public has had toward Detroit in quite some time, it's all evaporating.

Detroit Mayor Dave Bring flatly rebuffed an ingenious Twitter suggestion that the city erect a statue to RoboCop, a la Philadelphia's Rocky statue.

Detroit clearly doesn't know the meaning of the word awesome. I'm not sure how Mayor Bing will feel when his city has no one to protect it from the future crime-ridden wasteland it will become. Perhaps Columbus should step up with our own statue, perhaps RoboCop flipping the bird due north?
