Dictatorship of Irony

Scene for the City Council Hearing on Voting
Earlier this month, a group of individuals successfully blocked efforts to allow Detroiters to vote on whether or not they want the Mayor to oversee the Detroit Public Schools, in a non-binding advisory question that would have appeared on the November ballot.

Now comes word that the same group of individuals will ask Detroiters to vote to recall those council members who voted to allow us to vote on school governance.

Yes, the individuals who were opposed to allowing Detroiters to vote are going to ask us to vote to remove those members of the Detroit City Council that they don't like.

Please take a moment to relish the irony of this.
