I've heard that plan-to let Wayne County absorb Detroit's government. If the county had strong leadership and stable finances, I'd support that plan. It seems to work for Miami/Dade county in Florida.
I feel bad for Snyder and Bing in all this, who are committed to working together across party lines to find something that will work.
In other Detroit news:
Illitch is supposed to announce any day now that the Wings are getting a new arena. I wonder who is paying for it? Illitch himself? Quicken Loans? Compuware? The downtown Potemkin Village gets larger.
