DETROIT A spokeswoman for Boston's mayor says Thomas Menino is sorry that his published remarks that Detroit should be blown up and started over caused offense in the Motor City.

Bing says the choice of words is "extremely regrettable."

Menino spokeswoman Dot Joyce says her boss "feels strongly about cities," cares about Detroit's problems and "would like to help in any way he can."

Joyce says "the mayor is sorry that people have taken offense."
