Lonely Planet Editors Seem To Be Seriously Smoking The Electric Lettuce

The Detroit Free Press: Detroit is the No. 2 city in the world to visit, Lonely Planet says

Seriously, I had to check that it wasn't reporting form The Onion. Lonely Planet rated Detroit the 2nd top city in the word to visit right behind Seville, Spain.

Detroit just managed to eek its way ahead of both Damascus and Kabul (both somehow didn't place in the top ten), and handily beat out Olso, Canberra and Antwerp in the list, not to mention all the amazing cities that didn't make the top ten - as in most of them.

I mean this whole campaign to say good things about Detroit is nice and all, but Lonely Planet crowning it the Number 2 city in the whole freaking world to visit has just got to be SWPL ironic self-parody.
