Returning from a road trip, my family and I were commenting on how little bad driving we had seen on it.

On a freeway, we passed the Detroit city limits.  At the moment, we were being passed on the right--unremarkable, except we were in the right lane at the time.

The most amusing thing I ever saw in Detroit was an all-orange car.  The only thing NOT orange was all the chromework, which was gold.  Big Cadillac Fleetwood, all orange--including all the glass, including the windshield.  The fellow driving was dressed as if he were a stereotypical pimp in a bad '70s movie.

The year is 1974:

In Young's first year, there were 801 murders, up from 508 just three years before, and the old label "Murder City" gave way, in the press and the streets, to the grimmer still "Kill City." Even as the numbers rose, the crimes themselves grew nastier: old-fashioned one-on-one sexual assaults became gang rapes, stabbings were replaced by shootings, and unruly fights by execution-style slayings. Hardly a week went by without a major horror story on the front page of the papers. Police investigators were shocked, as one put it, by "the way the public accepts the homicide rate." Indignation, the copy told a reporter, had been replaced by a "ho-hum, another murder." The department was baffled by a rash of inquiries from citizens about the number of slayings in a given week- until it came out that the curious callers were organizing office betting pools

FARK rebel soldier: JohnAnnArbor: Aidan: meyerkev: Please let it be Bing.

I'd like to see that, tentatively. I'd like to know what exactly Bing would do given more power. I know he's done as much as he could, but is that because his hands are tied or because he's just not good enough? I THINK it's the former, but I'm not certain.

It seems like the structural setup in Detroit makes Bing much weaker than a big-city mayor typically is.  So it would make sense to (essentially) give him the power and let him run with it.

Since the democratically-elected officials that run this city have failed their constituents over and over, for decades, and the constituents are too stupid to realize it, its time for someone else to take charge.

This is long overdue.  It's what happens when you let democrats run things for long enough.   It's great hearing liberals squeal and try to deflect the blame for the mess they made, unfortunately the less intelligent and less educated members of society will believe them.

meat0918: yeegrek: And the inevitable climax of the Teabagger Revolution finally comes around.

I generally try to avoid playing this game (but I'll power through it this one time):  Can anyone else imagine the psychotic ragegasm that would erupt from the right if a Democratic Governor told, say, a part of Appalachia that it was no longer fit to govern itself and therefore it's elected representatives would be swept aside in favor of the Gov's cronies?   I'm sure they'd handle it with the same general sense of calm and lack of hyperbole that they always handle things with.

Oh, many of the retirees that jumped on the Teabagger train in Michigan got a rude awakening when their pensions started getting taxed by the guy that courted the "Taxed Enough Already" crowd.  They might not have voted for Obama, but they didn't turn out for Romney either.

It finally chased my step-father away from Fox News.


Wait, I got confused.  It was my mother enforcing a no political or religious talk in the house because the parties involved couldn't chat without it escalating into a shouting match and it was tearing apart my step-dad's extended family and my family was not wanting to visit our mother because of his families issues.
