Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

Kwame Kilpatrick

Four months in prison, five years probation, and a million dollars in restitution? It's a start.

So, the mayor of my state's largest city is gone. He is to be replaced by the city council president, Ken Cockrel jr. I am hoping this fellow will be better for Detroit.

I miss Mayor Archer...

if I Mrs. Cockerel (got a visual?) I would be rubbing my hands together while I planned redecorating the mansion. I'd also be looking in all the nooks and crannies for fun paraphenalia.
