Beatty: This is one of those humor me questions, when I send you messages like the last one I sent, do you feel "special" LOL (remember, humor me)? I'm just asking because when I get little messages like that from you, I am so geeked! LOL! I have to calm myself down sometimes.

Kilpatrick: You make me feel like a King! There has been NOBODY in my life that makes me feel more special. (geeked)

-- An October 2003 exchange between former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and aide/mistress Christine Beatty -- just two of 6,000 sad, banal, inappropriate and goofy text messages released by court order this week after the probe that sent both to jail for obstruction of justice.

Kwame, what a shame ... an opportunity to turn a city around and become a hero, and what does he do? Thank goodness for Mayor Booker of Newark who had many of the same problems and obstacles and turned it into a movement ... a rebirth.
