Hello, revolution? When can you start?

If you're not pissed off, you really have lost your mind.

We're talking, of course, about the fact that instead of competent business leaders, accountants, lawyers and urban planning experts from around the country, Mayor Bing's Let's Save Detroit team turns out to be nothing more than castoff mayoral candidates, former Kilpatrick flunkies, a convicted felon, people in drug-slinging biker gangs.

Come back, Ken!

There's cold comfort, at least -- Barbara Rose Collins announced she was taking her tiara and going home after years of "service" to the community in City Council and the House of Representatives. This means we are likely to never hear a stirring rendition of "Onward, Christian Soldiers!" sung in council chambers ever again. Sad.

No time for tears, though - city government is back to business-as-usual, which is to say, looks like it's back to being the local money trough, seeing as this town is all out of better ideas re: how to survive.

Isn't it enough, already? This guy proposes a revolution. The blog endorses this and stands ready to help in any way it can.

I support that, too. Thanks for sharing.

I'll support it, as well- most of Michigan would benefit from a revolution. If it can be organised and start in Detriot, maybe it will spread.
