Monica Conyers thought resignation meant working from home Even though she’s no longer on City Council because of her federal felony conviction, Monica still has important work to do for the citizens of Detroit. According to Monica, you don’t give up the title of Councilwoman when you give up the job. So she took some things with her to set up a home office. Mostly computers and printers so she... Read more→

“Democracy is the worship of jackals by jackasses.” – H.L. Mencken So the Michigan Chronicle decided to say what every sane person in Detroit already knows: Martha Reeves is a huge mess who has no business in public office. All it took was the taint of a public corruption scandal, comments that Council was her second job, a bizarre campaign flyer that suggested (among other things) that... Read more→

Is Rochelle Riley’s remarkably sexist drivel intentional, or just some horrible mistake? If the day comes when an obituary is written for the internet pamphlets that are Detroit’s newspapers, banality will be one cause of death. And Rochelle Riley surely will be a reason just as smoking is a reason of lung cancer. Apparently under the delusion that we continue to live in a perpetual 1947, Riley... Read more→

This personal relationship must have been really, really bad We know that text messages prove convicted felon Kwame Kilpatrick and sexy police monitor lady Sheryl Robinson Wood had an inappropriate “personal relationship.” We also know that they met outside of Detroit and sometimes at restaurants (Benz Chili Bowl?) but the specifics of the “personal relationship” remain unspoken. So this... Read more→

Repairing School Board as likely as repairing that Ford run over by a train Too soon? Whatever. Stephen Henderson’s Sunday column was spot-on. The Detroit School Board is giant clump of stupid that cannot be salvaged. It’s a perfect example of the excesses of unfettered democracy not unlike Robespierre’s Committee of Public Safety. We might as well write-in Mickey Mouse, Jimmy Hoffa, or... Read more→

Well we’re back. Let’s review what we’ve missed just so everyone is up to speed. Benny Napoleon is the new Wayne County Sheriff, replacing Warren Evans who is now the Detroit Police Chief. That was Napoleon’s old job. Crazy. Kym Worthy also said something boring about due diligence. She’s such a buzz kill, all the time with the ethics and best practices. Read more→  Read More →

Madame Governor, is there a time that’s more convenient for you? Jennifer Granholm poked her head out of the governor’s mansion and saw her shadow today. That means we can’t talk about Andy Dillon’s public employee health care re-structuring plan for 76 weeks. Bold ideas, like her shadow, give Jenny such a fright. It’s just not a good time for her to discuss long-term solutions to the state’s... Read more→

City Council doesn’t pay taxes, only the little people pay taxes Say what you will about Leona Helmsley but she was probably a nicer person than Monica Conyers. Or at least she couldn’t have been any meaner than Detroit’s favorite Child of God. And she certainly wouldn’t wait around in a fish market’s parking lot for a mere $2000. Helmsley was definitely smarter than Martha Reeves... Read more→

Loyal reader “IngeLvr69″ sent us this fantastic camera phone picture of the really fun Quicken outing to Campus Martius last Friday. A good portion of the group was wearing deTROIT 2.0 t-shirts. The lady in the red pants is smoking a cigarette. This deTROIT 2.0 will be like Paris mixed with Silicone Valley only with more hot women and beer. Also a Cheli’s Chili! Read more→  Read More →
