    It is amazing how some people who commit crimes are charge while other go and live the good life. Why hasn't Cheney and Rowe been arrested. The mayor stole pennies compared to the money that was channeled thorugh Haliburton? That just goes to show the kind of country we live in.

    Forget the money, how about the hundreds of thousands of lives that have been spent by Cheney's misguided decisions.

    I think the city of Detroit is digging up as much as they possibly can on Kwame Kilpatrick. Hasn't he been punished enough? Persecution to the 10th power. Umph!

    Good! Keep 'em coming! You do the crime? Do the time. No mercy just because he is already in prison.
