    Wow! This is great.

    It’s great that it got national coverage, and Maddow did a really good job of highlighting the main issues, but I don’t know what good it will do. I don’t get the sense that the Emergency Financial Manager will back down, or that the Governor will come though with more money for public schools of Detroit… Andrews, by the way, strikes me as one hell of a lady. She should run for elected office.

    People, it seems, are trying to get the ACLU involved.

    I’m going to the demonstration on Thursday if anyone wants to come.

    I wish I could go with you, Pete, but I’m booked on Thursday.

    It’s going to be a big event.

    Apparently, though Principal Andrews was somewhat ambivalent about it. I’m not sure why.
