There is so much wrong with what Detroit City Council member JoAnn Watson said yesterday.
"Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that," she declared on the floor of the City Council. "Of course, not just that, but why not?"
"After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he went to Washington, D.C. and came home with some bacon," said Watson. "That's what you do."
Coleman Young, who was mayor of Detroit in the 1970s and 1980s, assisted in the destruction of Detroit. A former union boss--his confrontational style accelerated the flight of businesses and jobs from Detroit.
