Rarely do I find anything to agree with in the Detroit News, so I am surprised to find out they think it is 'unwise' to wrest control of Detroits Water Department from the city. Of course, this is buried in a story on a voluntary Metro Detroit water group. Go figure.
The Free Press has more details on the proposed takeover here.

Dawson Bell seems to be upset that Lansing protesters didn't repeat the lies his paper and the mass media publish about Iraq. His suggestion that 'every analyst and government on the planet' believed there were weapons of mass distraction ignores the truth for a shared false reality based on misinformation and misunderstanding. He then goes on to belie the difference between 'grave' and 'imminent'. I found urgent and pressing in my thesarus. Me thinks he doth protest too much!

Happy days are not quite here again but this quote from *former* HP Emergency financial Manager Ramona Pearson: "'I'm angry at politics, not at the people who are doing what they are told to do", should give you an idea why HP Councilwoman Thompson said: "The city did not improve as much under her administration. We still have the same problems today as we did four years ago." The article doesn't paint a very good picture of her replacement, former Wayne County commissioner Arthur Blackwell, either.

As Detroit prepares for a Friday March 18th event, Ralph Nader gives us some ideas. He also admonishes us a bit with: "If the peace movement had continued to advocate for an end to the war during the presidential election year, rather than remaining silent where would be today?"

The Senate has spoken: put away your credit cards. New Bankruptcy Legislation will make it harder to get rid of debt. Particularly for those whose medical bills put them into debt and ilness keeps them from paying it off. Go figure.
