Some items in the Detroit Free Press today:
- Gotta have it... "We have to look like and act like the dope dealers," said Police Chief Ella Bully-Cummings after the City Council rejected a proposal to lease "four luxury cars -- at $100,000 a year over two years. One of the rides is a 2005 Lincoln Navigator." That, after the blowup about the Mayor leasing one for his wife and charging to the city.
- An appropriate name... "Denise Fordia Coke was arraigned in 37th District Court in Warren on a charge of possession with intent to deliver cocaine...."
- Somehow slipped our mind... "New York's Freedom Tower, the tallest skyscraper planned for the site of the destroyed World Trade Center, will be redesigned to address security issues.... Police officials last month presented concerns, including that the tower's planned location, 25 feet from a six-lane highway, would leave it vulnerable to a truck bomb."
