Edwards wasn't arrested though.

Bill Bonds & Rich Fischer to team up to do news talk radio show on WCAR-AM (Detroit News)
Might be good. Bonds always has lots of opinions and observations. I hope it doesn't bog down into old fart type ramblings though. We'll see.

GM claims it made a $2.5 billion profit last quarter (Detroit Free Press)

The Driver License: Is It Necessary? (
"The basic (and only legitimate) purpose of the driver license is to certify that the owner of that license has proven that he/she is capable of operating a motor vehicle on public roads in a safe and responsible manner.

He knows he has no case but fears that deciding not to charge will enrage the howling mob in Madison. He fears that his liberal privileges will be revoked and that he will be the target of sing-alongs and vuvuzelas. He will be linked to the Koch Brothers and ALEC. Oh, and he can forget about election to the post to which he has been appointed." [emphasis added]

Hoist on his own petard. Heh.
