Gov. Granholm takes over the city of Pontiac

My hometown of Pontiac, MI has been going through financial troubles for a while now.

Well now it is seen to be so bad that Jennifer Granholm has declared the city a state of emergency and may appoint someone to manage the cities assets.

shocking, but honestly I doubt they can run things worst then the people in charge of the city already are.

The mayor of Pontiac says
“We weren’t aware we were in any special trouble,”

he also thinks the city will have a $5 to $7 million deficit next year.

Hey Mayor Philips I think that is a sign that the city is in trouble!

maybe having special attention from the governor could be a good thing for the city. as the state tries to turn it self around, maybe we will be seen as one of the key places needed for improvement.

I think scammers are trying use Obama's stimulus plan to trick people

I just got a phone call with a recorded message talking about a debt restructuring plan, but unlike other messages of this nature they are using the stimulus plan that was recently past as a hook, by saying that this restructuring plan is part of the stimulus package.

attack of the living dead social networking site: friendster

I had open a friendster account way back when that was the popular networking site, that I have used in ages.

but it seems like every other day I get an email saying someone wrote me a message or sent a friend request and I check it to see if it's someone I know/knew and it always spam.

what I wonder is does anyone actually still use friendster that isn't a spam bot zombie?
