Picking winners and losers, or Mayor Bing forces relocation of Citizen Bing with Manoogian right-sizing planBy
OMG, Dyspathy headline writing department! Why are you guys so insensitive? Rochelle Riley bravely explained that Dave Bing isn’t right-sizing Detroit. That’s the wrong word. He’s redefining Detroit. After months of transparently secret work with planning guru Toni Griffin, Dave Bing is ready to implement phase one of their plan.
As Bing will probably explain to Jim Gray on the ESPN (cable channel 10) special The Redefinition, Bing is taking his talents to Detroit’s south beach. You probably didn’t know Detroit had a south beach, but that’s because we just redefined the Manoogian Mansion neighborhood as south beach. Yay Detroit 3.11!
See, despite promising to not occupy the Manoogian Mansion on the campaign trail, and despite Karen Dumas’ claim last month that the mayor wouldn’t occupy the Manoogian, Bing will move into the mayoral residence where Carlita Kilpatrick may or may not have attacked a stripper. However, Dave Bing remains sensitive to the stigma left over from the Kilpatrick regime. So he’s renaming the Manoogian Mansion as The Mayor’s Residence. Which sounds like it should be followed by “A Westin Hotel.” Because Alex Manoogian’s legacy is problem here.
Whatever doddering Adcraft pensioner volunteered this re-branding strategy should just apologize right effing now. To Detroit voters for trying to insult their intelligence, and probably to the Manoogian family. Then Dave Bing should stop wasting time with stupid shit. And fire his communications team. Say what you will about Team Kilpatrick, but they never made James Canning announce something this stupid. (DetNews)
