Go ahead and take it

Prosecutors have offered to drop one of two assault charges against embattled Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick in exchange for his resignation.

Assuming he can manage to avoid jail time on the other charge, Kilpatrick might want to reconsider his initial rejection of this plea deal.

Kilpatrick needs to face the facts: he's not going to be mayor for much longer, given the universal push to get him out of office. But there's no need to compound that disappointment with a move from City Hall to a cell block.

Pride ain't worth that kind of ass-whipping.
