    •  Years of Corruption has not helped... (0+ / 0-)

      But the People of Detroit did not cause the corruption, as some in positions of Power with assistance from others in Lansing -- who knew -- but said nothing, instead waiting on the right time to strike.

      And the retirees should not suffer because of it.

    •  Dude, Detroit is not terribly corrupt (0+ / 0-)

      At least as these things go.

      Prior to Kwame nobody took a bribe. Post Kwame all bribees are in jail.

      I'm not saying Kwame was actually a good Mayor, or that he hasn't exacerbated the problem, but if you think Detroit is screwed because of corruption you clearly don't know much about Detroit.
