Famous slumlord Michael Higgins took a dilapidated building drowning in tax debt and managed to sell it (to the taxpayers) for $3,300,000. Brilliant. Who agreed to this? Oh the head of Michigan’s Land Bank Fast Track Authority, Carrie Lewand-Monroe, that’s who. This is the real estate equivalent... Read more→

Robert Bobb wants the truth Bobb, we live in a city with schools and those schools has to be fleeced by men with connections. Who’s going to do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for the schools and curse the kleptocracy; you have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that schools failing, while tragic, probably... Read more→

Is Jennifer Granholm freaking retarded? Apologies to the actual mentally disabled. They have more intelligence, courage, and integrity than Jennifer Granholm. Remember that whole Detroit Riverfront International Crossing plan? The one that Michigan and Ontario as well as the U.S. and Canadian federal governments spent several years and several million dollars to develop? Granholm just threw the whole... Read more→

Mitch attended the... Read more→

Lansing waits until the last minute, totally doesn’t sweat it Other states started working on their budgets when the year began. They slowly but surely put together a plan that paid for all important state functions in an efficient and fair manner. Nerds. Michigan was like whatever brah, we’re gonna play Xbox and do bong hits until the end of the fiscal cycle. That’s what they did and it totally... Read more→

“Democracy is the worship of jackals by jackasses.” – H.L. Mencken Yes we’re doing this again. We’d love to tell you about the Kwame Kilpatrick shenanigans in court (PUT THAT COFFEE DOWN! Your name Kilpatrick?

Turns out the Tigers weren’t so righteous a franchise after all. Now Detroit is totally screwed. There’s no way this city can ever rebound after this soul-crushing loss in the bottom of the 12th. Fernando Rodney is our Ralph Branca, fine. But Alexi Casilla as the 2009 Bobby Thompson? Our spirits can no longer be lifted. To quote Dylan: It’s not dark yet but it’s getting there.... Read more→
