Link Drop - June 29, 2009

  • Sam Riddle dishes more dirt on Monica Conyers (Free Press) and Ken Cockrel plans to force her off the City Council (News). The sooner the better, I'd say.
    • Detroit Make It Here gives some much deserved press to Going Home, a community blog that's helping to revitalize the struggling neighborhood near City Airport.
    • Is the Packard Plant -- the always-burning, forever-abandoned, 43-building dumping-ground on the city's east side -- Detroit's greatest absurdity? Bill McGraw makes the case (Free Press).
    Update: Monica Conyers resigns from office effective July 6 (Crain's).

    Thanks for the tip. I updated the post.

    I just wish her resignation were effective immediately. I hope she doesn't plan on casting any last-hour votes.
