The answer is by using the bankruptcy to stay (or stop) constitutional challenge to these unprecedented powers. Your vote: Forget it. Your right to go to court: Forget that too. Any accountability of your local government: Don't make me laugh. Jones Day has no reason in the world to do anything for ordinary Detroiters. They're working a corporate gouging operation on another whole level. If people can't see that in these mass water shut-offs, they're simply blind.
The Chamber President is also quoted in that same column as follows: "The word has penetrated deeply in the national investor community that Kevyn Orr is setting the table for Detroit's next chapter." I really like a couple readers' comments to that one. A lawyer said "But he neglects to mention Detroit is the main course." And a psychologist says: "I know another word for 'penetrated deeply." All this stuff would be even funnier if so many quite powerless people weren't so being badly hurt by emergency management. One anonymous genius put together a parody website with graphics, musc, video, etc. that has to be seen to be believed: kevynorr.com
