Paying the budget deficit forward, Don Barden; Bernie Glieberman are poors, and Macomb County needs geometry and theologyBy
NOTE: So crazy, this was supposed to publish this morning. Anyway, here it is for posterity.
Something we forgot about yesterday
Monday we probably should have told you about Dave Bing’s plan to (according to Free Press headline writers) eliminate the city’s debt by…wait for it…borrowing money. It’s kind of like the time I owed Visa a bunch of money but I eliminated that debt by getting a Discover card. And you know what else is pretty sweet? Up to 1% cash back. Hopefully, the city will get that kind of deal on their $250,000,000. That reminds me, I need to eliminate my Discover card debt with a Mastercard. Do they still make Diners Club? (Freep)
It’s all Dennis Archer’s fault
Don Barden’s casinos are bankrupt. Clearly if Dennis Archer didn’t hate Don Barden so much this wouldn’t have happened because of his magical riverfront casino/Michael Jackson theme park revenue. Thankfully his casinos won’t have to close simply because they are losing millions of dollars every fiscal quarter. Despite his troubles, Don Barden will ensure seniors in God forsaken places like Gary, Indiana and Mississippi will have some place to waste their Social Security checks. (Las Vegas Sun)
Bernie Glieberman is just a common poor
The man who wrecked not one but two CFL franchises in Ottawa is broke. Bernie Glieberman’s headquarters is in foreclosure. His Monroe housing project was left unfinished. And there’s another $85,000,000 in bad debts floating around. The worst part is that he can’t blame any of this on Forest Gregg. Glieberman is chairman of the Michigan State Housing Development Authority. Now he can relate to the regular poors who require MISHDA’s help. Silver lining! (DetNews)
The squares and rectangles of Macomb County
The link below connects to a vanilla article about a Macomb County reapportionment committee. County Democratic chair Ed Bruley will step aside because he’s also a county commissioner. Pretty boring stuff. Until you get to the comments section. That’s where some local genius suggests forgoing this whole “apportionment” process. Instead, let’s just divide Macomb into “squares and rectangles.” That’s better for “the regular, non-politician, average tax paying residents” who are too ignorant to understand proportional representation.
