Mayor of Detroit

Dave Bing was elected to fulfill the rest of Kwame Kilpatrick's term as mayor of Detroit. The 65 year-old former NBA player and hall of fame hero turned business man, will serve for at least the next seven months. Bing has no experience in politics so I hope he's a quick study.

But I don't think he was elected for his ability to handle the city's deficit or keeping the World Auto Show in Detroit. In a corrupt system he is a turn toward integrity. He ran on a platform of change. But that change will need to be as much a change in moral direction as it is economic.
