Detroit Public Square: Readers' Choice
Best Title for Kwame Kilpatrick's Tell-All Autobiography
“I’m a Crook”
Published: April 9, 2014
Goddamn, the reader suggestions here were something else. This is why we enjoy posing questions like this to MT readers. The Detroit mayor and star of the Democratic Party earned some exceptional condemnations of note. The selections ranged from a guided approach (How to Fuck Over a City in Three Easy Steps) to the personal (Diary of a Thief) to the comical (It Was Fun! — I Can’t Lie). It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what phrase sums up Kilpatrick’s political rise and collapse the best, but most picks centered on a similar theme that we felt was most appropriate: I’m a Crook.
