Good morning, City Desk readers. This one is going to be a quickie! Oh, and happy Friday:

  • No rescue for Detroit. Pourquoi? “Senate Republicans refused to support a bill endorsed by the White House and Congressional Democrats.” Can you smell the irony? (Re big oil in bed with big auto while Republicans watched.)
  • Check out The Secret History of Pop Cesspool, Vol. 13!11!! (As long as PC/JW writes secret histories, by God, City Desk will round them up!)
  • Holy shit: vampires in Maryland! (Social conservatives react with rage, call for head of Stephenie Meyer.)

Well, uh, I’m satisfied. See you all Wednesday morning!
