I've blogged in the past about my hometown of Detroit. Once one of the country's most prominent cities, its land use decision-making (among other things) has really gutted large chunks of the community.
This recent PBS special (1.30 hours long so get a nice latte, warm muffin, and a quiet place to listen) does a nice job detailing how Detroit ended up where it is today.
It also discusses how land use and transit policy might provide one of the few hopes to reclaim some level of viability throughout the troubled areas.
