Detroit deserves help
Re: Frank Beckmann’s Jan. 24 column, “Let’s call a bailout a bailout”: A shame. A more open-minded state would be able to see the value of this and pass it no problem. Michigan, as always, lets politics get in the way of true progress.

Re: Southfield Mayor Brenda Lawrence’s Jan. 23 column, “Detroit, don’t drop dead”: Thank you Mayor Lawrence. Too often, my ancestors are dishonored and insulted with statements similar to Patterson’s. The words “herding,” reservation,” “blankets” are knives in our hearts and wounds that have never healed. Our people are openly dishonored with no consequences.
