On second thought

My initial reaction was sheer relief, but given the damage done to the city and the region (not to mention Kilpatrick and his family), there's little to celebrate yet besides the simple act of moving on. The truth is, Kilpatrick should have resigned months and months ago, and no one -- not the city, not Kilpatrick -- received any benefit from this long-drawn-out drama. But Detroit, as its motto testifies, is a city destined to rise from its ashes, and I hope the end of the scandal leads directly to reform.
