``...mass demolition is an emerging strategy in American cities plagued with blight: The only way to rebuild is to destroy first. And no city is doing it like Detroit. Motown, where blight is a feature characteristic, is obliterating large swaths of its once-great city. Ironically, the drive is being led by Bill Pulte, whose grandfather, William Pulte, founded the largest home building company in the U.S., PulteGroup Inc. in Bloomfield Hills. He built his first house in Detroit in 1950. It's still standing.''
