Hadn't heard from former Dallas mayor Laura Miller in a while -- then, twice yesterday. And she shows up again today, this time in a Detroit Free Press column about Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's ever-expanding security detail. At first it looked like Miller was just recounting an anecdote about Kilpatrick. Only, not so much: It's almost as much about Miller as the Motor City mayor. And it includes some choice quotes about crime in Detroit versus crime in Dallas and how Miller never needed more than one bodyguard -- "not even after Hurricane Katrina, when I would visit the arena where we were housing thousands of refugees." --Robert Wilonsky
