I’m from Detroit. Born and raised. I lived in the city 89.47% of my life (I did the math.) So it brings me great pleasure to know that my hometown’s former mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, has been sentenced to 28 years in federal prison for a myriad of fraud charges, while I escaped one – that I voted for him his first term.
Instead of pooring pouring one out for Kwame, I thought this song might be a better send off:
