When I was a young student of literature and the arts at Wayne State Universtiy, the Kresge cafeteria at the nearby DIA was one of my favorite places to do lunch in Detroit. Loved those high brick walls! There was an open, outdoor feel to the place!--Herman Northrop Frye

Is the Kresge cafeteria still in existence? I've been at Wayne State for 3 years and I've not heard of it. To enjoy the open air at Wayne today you must first scope out an area for several days to make sure that it is not a favored haunt of the local transients. I did not have this information my first semester there. Therefore, I became a favored target to these people. I became ever so much wiser during my second semester. However, even the wisest walk away with events they will never forget.

The beloved DIA. Not fancy, not nearly enough, but it will do.

Great pics, friend.

DIA IS GAY!!!!!NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT!!!--GEORGE CONSTANZA

In a sense, George is right. In my younger days at the DIA, I would have lunch at the Kresge cafeteria with Sam Wagstaff, one of the head curators. You may not recognize Sam's name but you must certainly remember a young up-and-coming photographer and boyfriend of Sam's--Robert Mapplethorpe. I often wondered if Sam introduced Robert to the bullwhip. Of course, they've both died of AIDS, and the DIA has, for me, retained a certain, how shall I say it, "gay aura"? Not, as George says, that there's anything wrong with that.--Herman Northrop Frye
