It's A Small World

January 22, 2002

Did you know that the excellent Director of Public Information for the city of Dearborn, Mary Laundroche, who by the way just received a 28% raise from Mayor Guido, at one time was better known as Mary Geddes of the - do you really want to know ??? - Dearborn Press & Guide. Could there be such a thing as an "old gals network" working here? And of course, there is no such thing as the Dearborn Press & Guido.

Lucky East Dearborn

If the apportionment bill goes through, Democratic Representative John Conyers will represent them. Seems that under the democratic sponsored bill, minority seats must be protected at all costs. Ironic, isn't it?

Attention Shoppers! Attention Shoppers!

January 17, 2002

Mayor Guido is having a SALE. That's right, a SALE. 50% off on memberships to the beautiful new Dearborn Civic Center Spa, called the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center. And also, 20% off on all concert tickets to the grand Ford Community & Performing Arts Center Theatre on Michigan Avenue.

ONLY ONE CATCH- YOU MUST BE A CITY WORKER.

Hey, Mr. Mayor, where's the discount for the citizen taxpayers that are going to pay and pay and pay and pay for the grand edifice addition to our city?

Money Talks and B.S. Walks

January 4, 2002

Regards Osama Bin Laden; does anyone else have a feeling that the Northern Alliance actually were spiriting him out of Tora Bora? Sorry, I have the distinct impression that those guys will help out whoever hands over the most "mullah" $$$ - no pun intended.

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

January 4, 2002

How refreshing it is to have a president that admits he goes to bed at 10 PM on New Years Eve, instead of trying to be one of the boys, ala Clinton.

Who's That Up There in the Corner?

January 4, 2002

Ok, so you wanna know why I have that twenty year old photo of me on the top of my website. Well, I'm vein. Plus I'm trying to be like Mayor Hubbard and Sharon Dulmage. What's wrong with an old picture? Move over Dorian Grey.

Neat Signs

January 4, 2002

The neatest sign in Dearborn these days is in front of the Ford Center. I happen to like it. But some other people think it's way to bright. What do you think?
