Fun With Headlines

Comments (0) 11:00 PM posted by admin |

In my defense, I’ve given the newsies some excellent sound bites over the past 20 months.

I told the Chief of Police it sounded like he was trying to “pimp his ride” after he submitted an request for $4,280 for side window lighting for a new police car. (It turns out the quote from the vendor was wrong and never corrected.)

I got the City Attorney to write a legal opinion about the possibility of holding Satanfest here in Ypsilanti.

I asked if there was going to be a “sweet-heart deal” in regards to dramatically lowering the property taxes of the Starkweather House after it was flipped. Uh, nevermind about that one.

I even got Bob Eccles to quote me saying that some unsound fiscal policy regarding fully funding the AATA purchase of service agreement was quote asinine.

That’s why it wounds me that a prestigious newspaper like the Ann Arbor News, who I admit that I am not quite cozy with, would run THIS headline.

I guess that’s what happens when you have a short name.
