Pontiac, Michigan -- Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson released the following statement to the "whiny epistle" written by the ringleader of the Oakland County Democrats, Frank Houston:
"If I were a democrat and had not seen Patterson for six weeks, I would consider it to be a great summer. The democrats have been so busy climbing all over themselves trying to be the one that measures me for my crypt, that I doubt they really are sincere about my well-being. But for the benefit of the many hundreds I've heard from, I can report to them that I'm fine. Most bruises and fractures have healed; and there's one stubborn nerve that I'm working on and should be back at my desk shortly."
