According to published news reports, Governor Rick Snyder is having problems finding someone to take the job of emergency manager for the City of Detroit. I recommend that he offer the job to one of the reformers on City Council, like Gary Brown or Ken Cockrel.
They are elected, respected, and qualified. More importantly, for the past three years, they have pushed harder for reform than anyone in the Bing Administration.
As an added bonus, I don't think either of them actually wants the job. This makes them more likely to move in, fix things, and move on with their lives.

I met a woman at work today who owes the City of Detroit $87 in resident income taxes. She swore she would head downtown to the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center and pay it all in pennies.
I believe I speak for all Detroit residents when I say, "Rock on, Penny Lady. Rock on."
The Joy Community Association, which represents the area immediately north of Warrendale, will meet this evening at 6 p.m. in the St. Martha's Apartments (15875 Joy Rd.). Their guest for this evening will be Detroit mayoral candidate Mike Duggan.
The public is invited to attend this meeting.
Corruption will not be tolerated. We have created an environment of integrity and trust. There is no pay to play requirement in this administration. Today, there is a level and fair playing field.
The agenda for this meeting will include:
- A 30 minute presentation by the Detroit Works Projects on the future plan for Detroit, which will focus on Rouge Park and the surrounding area;
- Progress on the development of a master plan for Rouge Park by students and faculty from Lawrence Technological University; and
- Attendees will be asked to complete a park survey to provide feedback on park usage.

Governor Rick Snyder confirmed over the weekend that the City of Detroit will receive an emergency manager soon. More over, this person is expected to come from outside of Michigan.
In addition, we also learned this morning that Pope Benedict XVI will resign his papacy.
Is this a mere coincidence?
Almost certainly so. Regardless, I think it's fun to wonder what kind of emergency manager Pope Benedict XVI would make.

I posted a prediction on my Twitter feed last week that Detroit Mayor Dave Bing would likely face his first federal indictment by June of 2014. A lot of people thought I was nuts when I posted that.

According to WXYZ-TV, a new plan has emerged to fund improvements to Belle Isle. This idea would have the City of Detroit charge an entry fee to drive onto Belle Isle, instead of the State of Michigan.
