    I didn't want to full on say so, because I am even more an outsider (and of course, unless one is there all the time, the media can play it however they choose), but it does seem that much of Detroit political life brings out a sense of entitlement in some of the longer term players. That's why I asked about Monica Conyers specifically - I get a distinct impression about her (it ain't that good an impression), but I don't know if it's simply that the media plays up what will make her look bad. The most recent being the Cobo machinations, along with older clips of her denigrating Cockerel as "Shrek". Honestly, the only time I really see any of it is when I'm at my parent's house - my Dad likes to watch both the Detroit news at 5PM, and the Windsor news at 6 - and the Detroit news he watches is the Detroit Fox local affiliate. On one hand, I feel I can trust Huel Perkins, but then again, it is Fox (and IIRC even Cavuto - who I loathe - makes an appearance on the local show).
