    DETROIT -- An aide to Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick filed a police report Thursday claiming Monica Conyers, the short-tempered City Council president pro tem and wife of U.S. Rep. John Conyers, threatened to get a gun and shoot him at a city pension board meeting.

    This is pretty typical for Detroit and area...

    Statistics show your chances for meeting a violent end are greater in this Detroit area than going to Iraq...

    And to top it all off, the mayor has ordered the law department to file an appeal to the state supreme court to prevent the release of documents, including text messages, in a whistle-blower law suit, which the city lost.

    A circuit court judge ordered the documents released, and was upheld by the appeals court.

    The mayor made claims of confidentiality in a publicly funded trial and settlement. The messages came to light about an affair with his chief of staff.

    Oh, by the way, he threw her under the bus, forcing her to resign.

    This is better than Search For Tomorrow, or As The World Turns.

    Stay tuned, folks.

    Best,
    Dennis

    PS - Hey Chuckles, you gonna be at the club today?
