DETROIT (WKZO) -- Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is backtracking on comments he made last week about Detroit when he said he'd quote, "blow up the place and start over."

Menino went on a Boston radio station Wednesday to apologize, saying he used a "poor choice of words."  Detroit Mayor Dave Bing this week called his counterpart's remarks "unfortunate" adding "I would think the mayor of a city that recently experienced a deadly bombing attack would be more sensitive and not use the phrase 'blow up.'"
