The Inevitable Death of a City - Blogging the Detroit Mayor Election

I've been checking in from time to time this evening to watch the Detroit mayoral election returns slowly filter in (its now 1:39 a.m. est). All signs are now pointing to an upset win by Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick over challenger Freeman Hendrix who had a commanding double digit lead in the polls as recently as this past weekend.

First thought: never trust pollsters when it comes to local elections. Whether its their incompetence or fickleness of Detroit voters, these polls seem to be as accurate as the answers I gave on geometry exams in high school.
