Kwame bails out school chief and takes wind out of earthquake's sails
Kwame Kilpatrick is in prison.
OK, nothing new to report, except of course that he's now facing new charges, the charges that much of the area's population has awaited and expected.
According to a story by The Associated Press, Kwame Kilpatrick was indicted on a 19-count federal warrant alleging what sounds like can be summed up in one word: corruption.
Interesting that Kwame's return to the front page occurs on the day that the perverted Detroit school board president continued being blasted while also:
1. Michigan and Canada and parts of northeast US experience earthquake fever,
2. The United States scores a late goal for an exciting finish in the final game of the World Cup's first round,
3. Another round of storms are watched with anticipation towards more power outages,
4. DTE tree trimmers set to strike,
5. A general honestly quoted by a rocknroll mag goes to face the Commander in Chief, and
6. A soccer game ends in exciting fashion.
I think that Kwame will play big on the TV news and of course the Detroit papers, but the earthquake I think is most interesting due to the immediate social media reaction to it. But the stories with biggest impact on our lives deal with weather and the subsequent power outages. The president's firing of the outspoken general also affect lives across the world.
Nice day to be in the news business, though I believe every day is fun. Now to see how everything gets played at 6 p.m., 10 and 11 p.m., and with the front pages.
