    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    Affirmative Action Meets The Peter Principle Part Deux: Ficanogate

    Wayne County's house of cards continues to fall.

    The new CEO of Detroit Metropolitan Airport, under fire for accepting a $200,000 severance, was sued three times over allegations of professional misconduct when she worked as a private attorney.

    The civil suits claim Turkia Mullin breached ethics when she represented both buyers and sellers in the sale of gas stations that were backed by federal funds. Some of the principals in the deals later were indicted or convicted for fraud after taxpayers lost $26 million on failed Small Business Administration loans.

    Mullin wasn't charged and didn't face professional sanctions.

    But some involved in the deals accused her of wrongdoing in civil court, and one questions why airport officials named her in August to the post that pays $250,000 per year.

    A Resignation At The Ready, Mr. Ficano?

    Because anything less would be subversively arrogant to Michigan taxpayers.

    Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano says he's done answering questions about Turkia Mullin or her $200,000 severance.

    One day after promising an internal review of the payment his office authorized, Ficano staffers on Thursday said "it would be a disservice to the process to piecemeal out answers" until the probe is complete.

    "Ficano has admitted that mistakes in policy and procedure had taken place," spokeswoman Brooke Blackwell said in a statement. "Measures (are) being put into place to ensure that this situation doesn't happen again."

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Affirmative Action Meets The Peter Principle

    And like Barack Obama, fails miserably.

    Turkia Mullin, a former Wayne County executive, announced this afternoon that she is giving back her controversial $200,000 severance payout.

    "I spoke with Mr. Ficano this afternoon and we mutually agreed that giving the money back is the best thing to do for both the county and the airport," Mullin said in a statement. "This issue has become such a significant distraction that it has interfered with our ability to focus on operations. It's time to put this behind us and get back to work."

    Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano praised Mullin, who got the payment in August after leaving as the county's economic development czar to run the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

    This is exactly what Political Correctness breeds.  In the private sector, severance packages are not paid out to employees that choose to leave their positions with their employer when advancing to another.

    Robert Ficano defended this mess that he created and should resign.  Turkia Mullin also made a complete ass out of herself throwing around the sexist card.
