Jesus Christ, Michigan. I swear. It's not a war. (Wait - is it? Crap.)
In other news, we're sorry/not sorry/undecided to see Ken Cockrel, Jr. unseated by Dave Bing this week, but anything to get Monica Conyers out of the big chair over at City Council. Interestingly, News sez that 500 people (or more) are lining up a run for council this year.
It's tempting to think that folks are all keyed up to engage in local political affairs and make a difference, but it also occurs that local government may be the one of the last stable industries in the city. The salaries aren't bad, and the whole by-district thing isn't exactly in place yet.
Really, it's a win-win. Still, if we can get a couple of the old biddies unseated and into treatment/nut houses/rest homes where they'd be much safer and happier, that'd be really sweet. Less embarrassments, more doing things to help - sounds like something worth shooting for.
