His Honor

From the Detroit Free Press:

"Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick plans to emerge from seclusion tonight and apologize to Detroiters from his church after a week of metastasizing controversy, expanding national coverage and a mounting circus atmosphere surrounding his possible perjury in the text message scandal.

The mayor has no plans to quit, aides said Tuesday.

In the speech, to be aired at 7:30 on television and radio from the Greater Emmanuel Institutional Church of God in Christ, the mayor will speak from a room before one pool camera. No audience will be present, nor will media members be allowed in the church on Schaefer at West 7 Mile."

No audience or media to be allowed in the church. Now I'm no crisis management expert, but this doesn't seem like a humble attempt at showing contrition. It seems to be more about "managing the situation" and trying to make it go away.
