Question of the Day
Council silences embattled mayor
DETROIT — The City Council rebuffed embattled Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s attempts to propose a budget yesterday, the latest sign of increasingly frosty relations between the mayor and city leaders.
Mr. Kilpatrick, who is fighting criminal charges, walked into the council chambers, sat down and prepared to speak. Council President Ken Cockrel then informed him that he had discussed the matter with other members over the weekend, and they agreed not to hear from the mayor.
Mr. Kilpatrick and former chief of staff Christine Beatty are awaiting a June 9 preliminary examination on perjury, misconduct and obstruction of justice charges.
Rumsfeld to publish memoir in 2010
NEW YORK — Donald H. Rumsfeld, the powerful defense secretary and architect of the Iraq war who left office in late 2006 as he faced rising criticism, is working on a memoir to be published by Penguin Group (USA) in 2010.
“This will be a story that will span my lifetime,” Mr. Rumsfeld, 75, told the Associated Press yesterday. “It will be something that I will try hard to … be very fair and honest and useful. I hope it adds to people’s information about these times.”
The book is currently untitled.
Mr. Rumsfeld met with several publishers and received “big bids” for his book, said a publishing official who asked not to be identified, but the former defense secretary accepted no advance, only money for expenses. Any profits will be donated to a foundation Mr. Rumsfeld has established to fund such projects as grants for “promising young individuals” interested in public service.
