Retraction to Detroit Free Press Coverage
It turns out that Ms. Shine did in fact ask about the statue, and based her statement on our reply that it wasn't relevant to our cause. Egg on my face, but egg I'll gladly accept for the new knowledge it spurred me to obtain on former Mayors Pingree and Maybury. I don't think it takes us too far off topic to note that it is possible to be a successful and popular mayor of Detroit if you have the kind of strength, vision and caring that Pingree had. He fought to defend the working man as we are doing today when we demand:
"Money for Detroit, Not for War!"
"Money for Jobs, Not for War!"
"Money for Education, Not for War!"
