Big Day for Detroit

My intention here was to show Michiganders’ greater interest in the next manager of the Detroit Tigers than in the next mayor of our largest city (which, for a while anyway, is still Detroit). The joke kind of hinged on the Tuesday election coming first. Alas for me, the Tigers found their manager and the news leaked Sunday. But I think more people probably knowing¬†Brad Ausmus¬†(a journeyman player and first-time manager) than the mayoral candidates (Mike Duggan and Benny Napoleon) also proves the point.

    Actually John – nobody in West Michigan cares who the mayor of Detroit is. None of them have been able to make any progress fixing that city’s many problems (unless you think casinos represent a solution).
