Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's indictment: how much more must Detroit endure?

Mayor Kilpatrick, charged with perjury, obstructing justice and misconduct in office, contends that he will be vindicated. Fine. Let the system do its job.

Does the city have to endure the burden of the case? It is already a spectacle, an embarrassment, a severe impediment to Detroit's progress.

Kilpatrick continues to resist suggestions that he resign. Does he really believe that he can serve Detroit well, even as his energy and resources are drained by a court fight?

Good luck, Mr. Mayor.

Good luck, Ms. Worthy.

Good luck, Detroit.
