If I haven’t told you lately that Detroit EM Kevyn Orr is a bully, that’s my bad.
I knew he was going to be a bully when he took the job, stood up in front of everyone and said, “Don’t make me go to bankruptcy court. You won’t enjoy it.”
Who starts out that way? “Hello,” he threatened.
“Now look, I’m a trial attorney. I can cut somebody’s throat and leave them to bleed out in the gutter with the best of them. But I didn’t want to do that. That’s not my role in this job. My role in this job is sort of the zen of emergency management.”
A Genovese Captain or an agent of Rick Snyder? You can’t tell, can you?
