Detroit Medical Center sold, let’s blame Jack White Remember when Jack “Benedict Arnold” White sold out and moved to Nashville because he’s an awful person who hates Detroit? His Nashville cronies purchased our Detroit Medical Center! We’d call it a precious jewel but that meme is getting tired. The DMC’s new Nashville overlords will renovate some facilities and maybe build a new Children’s... Read more→

Oh for fuck’s sake. When you strip from humanity any sense of shame (or class or decency), you get Team Kilpatrick. James Thomas doesn’t want to be convicted felon Kwame Kilpatrick’s lawyer anymore because his asshole client is a worthless deadbeat. Naturally, this is the City of Detroit’s fault.

You participated in a phallus-naming? Jennifer Granholm channeled her best Andrea Garcia-Thompson and declared Saturday as “Michigan Meatout Day.” Naturally, she will eat meat during her own meatout. The fraternal order of Balls and Shaft at the Michigan Farm Bureau is outraged. They called it an “unconscionable and insensitive” action by “food elitists.” Really?

Father Anton Kcira of Rochester Hills’ St. Paul Albanian Catholic Church said Milosevic should have just killed all the Muslims in the Balkans because Muslims are dogs or something. It’s easy to condemn this learned man of God for advocating genocide, but you have to understand that his comments were made in the heat of the moment. And taken out of context. When you... Read more→

Yesterday Dave Bing took a break from staving off Chapter 9 bankruptcy, developing a shrinking cities plan, and the other important business of running Detroit to talk about basketball. Wouldn’t it be swell if the Pistons moved back downtown in a new joint basketball/hockey arena? Sure, it would be nice, in that purely symbolic civic pride kind of way. The notion that sports venues produce significant... Read more→

Convicted felon Kwame Kilpatrick is having a tough go of it. Everyone is mad because he isn’t paying his restitution fast enough. What do you people want for the guy? Between renting that huge mcmansion and not making a sale, the guy is poors. Like an Appalachian coal miner’s widow. That’s why Kilpatrick retained high-priced PR consultant Mike Paul.
