Hood May Run Detroit

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 city’s future, the Rev. Nicholas Hood III formally announced today he is running for mayor in next year’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?
