ahhh.....

The wonderful ethics of Michigan politicians...I remember them well.

Say one thing, do another, get caught, blame the media, hide for awhile, then come back with some 'do-gooder' social project.

Megan, wasn't it Coleman Young perfected that little philosophy?

I remember his funeral. I was working in ODC downtown and we watched the funeral procession down Woodward.

I remember thinking how amazing it was that once he died he turned into such a Saint in the media, but when he was alive they picked him apart. Considering the "motor city" rep went away in favor of the "murder city", poverty went thru the roof and city services sucked wind, I'll never understand how he became so revered in the city. What did he actually DO that helped, other than repaint the park signs after he had his name put on them?

Here's another fine example of Michigan professional decorum - this time not the politicians, but the judges who enforce the laws the politicians write.

Your guess is as good as mine.

All I remember is the corruption, Detroit going from the 5th largest city to the 10th, the F.B.I bugging his house, and poverty. But he was the 1st black mayor of Detroit and he had been a State Senator, so I guess that does say something.

It really is amazing how the media hounded him while alive, and then praised him after his death...as they do with many politicians.

It doesn't just happen with politicians - many a family member becomes a saint after death!!!
