Monica Conyers is Monica Conyers crazy The Sam Riddle trial is like the Super Bowl plus Seinfeld’s 5th season plus All The President’s Men. Day one was that good. According to the tapes, Riddle said Monica (don’t call her Monica) was crazy “beyond medication” and barely capable of fulfilling the terms of her dirty deals. And Argh!

Mitch Albom facilitates commerce Poor Mitch never understood the auto show. It was just a bunch of cars in a convention center. He couldn’t figure out why people cared. Then he got to do commercials for the auto show and, like a man who commercializes an old man’s last days, Mitch totally gets the auto show! It’s important because times are tough blah blah blah.

The Granholm Legacy: diminished expectations in a third world Michigan The feds will give Michigan $224,000,000 to demo old houses. We need to tear them down because Michigan doesn’t have enough residents to fill our housing inventory. Also, we’ve let hundreds of once vibrant neighborhoods go to shit.
