For more than a generation, there has been a group of politically well-connected individuals who have profited from Detroit's demise. Today, with the City of Detroit financially insolvent largely due to their handiwork and a consent agreement - if not an emergency manager - on his way into town, it's clear that their days are quickly coming to an end. If they're not driven from office soon, they will at least be so severely constrained that they won't be able to hurt the rest of us much longer.
|Death Comes for the Kleptocracy|
This is a great thing, not only for the Warrendale neighborhood but for all of Detroit and, by extension, the entire State of Michigan. Therefore, I hereby proclaim the death of the kleptocracy to the be the Cool Warrendale Thing of the Week.
