With Duggan, Detroit breaks tradition of demagoguery

The post Coleman Young mayors have been a mixed bag, but most, if not all, have been much better than him. The Detroit mayor's race came down to the head of the police versus Mike Duggan, and the Detroit police is not something that's either good or on your side. Duggan won. The people of Detroit ignored the race baiting and voted for the person who they thought was best for the job, someone who had run one of Detroit's best institutions, Detroit Medical Center, while it was still a non-profit. Hospitals versus cops, you decide.
