    Mike Duggan, the write-in candidate who happens to be white, won the primary yesterday with 53% of the vote. Mike Duggan saved the Detroit Medical Center from bankruptcy, so he has fiscal skills that the city could use.

    I figure this qualifies as an End of the World post. It is the end of the world for race baiters like Tom Barrow, who got trounced yesterday and put his support behind the guy who came in second (Sheriff Napoleon-a good guy who is black) and referred to Duggan as "not one of us".

    Sounds like the "good guy in the white hat" won. Maybe there's hope yet.........

    Assuming he wins the enchilada, he would be very wise to bring Kevyn Orr in as a very high-level staffer as soon as it is practical to do so.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    One of the reasons Duggan won was because the populace views him as the guy who can help them get rid of Orr and the control of the governor.
