Ricochet: "Detroit judge: You can't win, you can't draw, you can't leave the game." A judge in Michigan declared that Detroit can't declare bankruptcy because, well, somebody has to pay for pensions.

A judge demands now that it adds to that total, because the state's constitution says so and because the public workers who have overseen the city's demise demand that someone else's ox be gored."
