Thanksgiving in Pontiac

It serves no one, really, for me to continue blogging and reporting at the usual pace during Thanksgiving. The people counting on me for cranberry and sausage stuffing will be let down. The people not reading the Internet won't notice.

Instead, I give you a story about the city of Pontiac, Michigan, the model for the state's new, controversial (we're talking "people gathering signatures to overturn it" controversial) revision of a law that allows all-powerful Emergency Managers to take over municipalities that are failing. I also give you this.
