Detroit lost a million-dollar check
Traffic moves along a street February 24, 2013 in Detroit, Mich.
Here's another peek into the Detroit's dysfunction: It turns out that earlier this year the city lost a million-dollar check.
The school system sent the check to the city. It got put in a drawer at City Hall. And didn't turn up for a month.
They didn't wire the money because Detroit doesn't have the technology to do that. Its financial systems are about 30 years out of date.
