Even with suncreen on my toenails, I keep a constant vigil for Schmuck Alerts. This almost qualifies. But then again, these two saucy dance partners were just doing their jobs - whatever those are. It happened in Dee-troit City as Mayor Kwame M. Kilpatrick wrapped up a midday press conference. That's when WXYZ's Steve Wilson - fresh from his van down by the river - moved in to quiz the Mayor on his latest controversy. But before Wilson could begin his grilling, he wasnrebuffed by an unnamed member of Kilpatrick's security detail. What followed was an awkward two-step, an aimless waltz featuring the kind of heated man-on-man action rarely seen in the Motor City. Hey, I'm all for free love, but the Mayor, his goons and the eternally rumpled Wilson share more bad blood than a hypodermic needle at a smack shooting gallery. I say we finish once and for all with a Kimbo Slice cage match, the Mayor in his thousand dollar suits, the reporter in a greasy wife-beater and and cycling shorts. That or a Dance-Off. Either way, I'd pony up some cash to catch the whole thing on Pay-Per-View. Who's in?
