Residents Deserve Better Services, and Bing Must Start Delivering

I moved home to Michigan a little over two years ago to raise my daughter here because I am from here. As a reporter, naturally I'm attracted to the Big City. And Detroit is Michigan's Big City.

I couldn't believe what I saw. Firefighters with holes in their boots. Ambulances without blankets, police cars with flat tires and computers that did not work. The Fire Department brass did not compile statistics (500 arsons a month). The Police Department brass lied about the number of murders. (It was 375 in 2008, not 306.)

I wrote these stories and people in power started complaining. "Where's the good news. Where's the fair and balanced?"
