The Otis Mathis case just got real. Turns out—if you believe Mathis’ lawyer—Mathis didn’t rub-n-tug in front of Teresa Gueyser, or write that shockingly competent resignation letter. Mathis’ improbably-named attorney Odie Uddyback says the whole thing was a devious plot to discredit Mathis so Dave Bing could steal Detroit’s precious jewel public schools. Which he will sell to the evil... Read more→

DPS to stay awful After listening to hundreds of unemployables shouting dull platitudes, City Council decided to protect your right to vote by deciding you shouldn’t vote on an advisory question about re-organizing DPS. That means Reverend David Murray and his merry band of incompetents continue to play school board. But it also means the state will just hire another emergency financial manager... Read more→

C. Montgomery “Matty” Moroun listens to Art Garfunkel’s soaring vocals while plotting evil Not content with owning the world’s only privately held border crossing, and paying political whores to disregard the best interests of our nation’s security, Moroun wants to build a floating “on demand” bridge as a kind of emergency back up. Great. Now that withered old corpse will be on Comcast... Read more→

Next Tuesday, Michigan voters will nominate candidates for governor. Dyspathy plans to write-in Reverend David Murray because we want him to be the face of the Great Lakes State. The rest of you have to choose between the seven actual candidates on the ballot. The good news is you literally cannot screw this up.

“Democracy is the worship of jackals by jackasses.” – H.L. Mencken Preliminary reports say City Council experienced some prodigious hyperbole today. People with no better way to spend a Tuesday crowded the 13th floor to gnash teeth over an ADVISORY ballot question about DPS governance. Asking people their opinion will violate the will of the people. Something about slavery. If we don’t... Read more→

The Killer has nothing to say When Crazy Joe Gallo testified before the McClellan Committee, he wore an awesome pair of Wayfarers and refused to answer a single question. He even pled the fifth when they asked him if his name was Joseph Gallo. Carlita and Bernard “The Killer” will employ a similar strategy in their Strawberry depositions. Probably because they’re guilty of something. Maybe not... Read more→

Internal poll shows expected result A new poll from the pro-mayoral control people say the people want mayoral control. Not terribly surprising. The elected school board includes a Team Kilpatrick dirt bag, a duly adjudicated child abuser, and until last month, it was led by a barely literate pervert. Of course, releasing an internal poll showing your side is winning is dubious. No one releases an... Read more→

Famous fecal stain Reverend David Murray was in the news again this week, because awful vulgarian (by which I mean honest and capable public servant) Gary Brown said Murray is the face of the Detroit Board of Education. Then Murray held a “NO” sign upside down. It was an interesting week for the Rev. Reverend David Murray, assuming that is his real name. Wait, what? Let me explain. Everyone makes... Read more→
