Summary, etc.: Detriot and its outlying areas, the middle of the industrial Middle West, was once the vibrant core of America; but it has now become in the New Appalachia. President Barack Obama's administration has shored up Chrysler Corproation and General Motors Corporation with $77 billion worth of federal loans, at least for the time being. But the 2009 bailout of Detriot failed to halt the "Rust Belt" deterioration afflicting Middle America.
