Like you might have done, I read the headline “Hood to run for Detroit Mayor” and said to myself, “Yeah? So what’s new?”
This time though, “Hood” is only the name of the candidate:
Declaring himself outraged about the state of the City of Detroit, but optimistic about the cityÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s future, the Rev. Nicholas Hood III formally announced today he is running for mayor in next yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s special election.
I must admit, it might be a good thing to have “Hood” be the name of a Detroit mayor instead of the profession of a Detroit mayor for a change.
But I’m getting way ahead of myself with my assumptions on a couple of different levels, aren’t I?
