Cultural "gem" or not Detroit can't afford a world-class symphony orchestra: So says Detroit News editor Daniel Howes in this recent blog post. He's right of course. But the bigger picture to my mind is that metropolitan symphony orchestras are a quaint left-over from the 19th century that we can safely ditch. If the DSO can't make it financially, just let it go.
