Today's Motie News from Detroit: Video report on Census
I know I promised you all an update on the Census last night; instead, I decided to play a game of Civilization with my wife. (I can't be all SRS BZNS all the time). I achieved a space race victory in 1983. If humans had done that in real life, we'd have already reached Alpha Centauri by now. For my troubles, I received a ranking of "Ivan the Terrible"--probably the worst of the competent leaders listed in the game. That's what I get for playing on Chieftain.
Enough about losing myself in fantasy. Time to snap back to reality. Oh there goes gravity...
The Detroit Free Press has a series of articles on the subject (scroll down and look at all the latest links; even I find the number amazing), that I'll get around to analyzing all the rest of this week. Right now, I don't have the time to do even one of them justice. I'll be lazy and let the WXYZ do the talking for me. This is also a test of how video embeding works here. Here goes nothing.
Looks like I managed to kill two birds with that stone. Time to go to work.
