A True International Spectacle For Sin City
We lost the Rolling Stones for heaven's sake. We need something big to match that.
We need the Mayor out there promoting an event that will be a true international spectacle with the world's media beating a path to Detroit. A famous Canadian and American are involved! It's a union between Detroit's Favorite Son, whose father was a Detroit-area car dealer, and one of Canada's biggest star.
I can think of several Windsor tie-ins to capitalize on the event but I will let the Mayor's Office figure out the best way to do it. I just hope the Mayor and Council do not ask Administration to do a study on this first since that is the process that must be followed before this Mayor will move.
Pamela Anderson, Kid Rock Tie the Knot

Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock had a wedding ceremony Saturday on a yacht in Saint-Tropez, PEOPLE has confirmed.
"She was the most beautiful bride I've ever seen – like a modern-day Brigitte Bardot," Jimmy Choo owner Tamara Mellon tells PEOPLE about Anderson, who wore a white string bikini to her nuptials. "Kid Rock was a total rock star. He gave her a good kiss. Everybody was crying." Adds Elton John's husband David Furnish: "It was a real rock n' roll wedding."
This is the second union for Anderson and the first for Rock (real name: Robert Ritchie) – and, apparently, there are more to come. "I'm going to get married a few times this month to the same guy," Anderson, 39, said July 26 during a news conference in Las Vegas. "We had to do Malibu, we've got to do Detroit, and we've got to do Nashville."
Anderson and Rock, 35, began dating in spring 2001. They became engaged on April 11, 2002, in the Las Vegas desert, but split the following year. Still, when they ran into each other early this month in Saint-Tropez on a mutual friend's yacht, the feelings were still there.
"It was like we'd never been apart," Rock told PEOPLE on July 11. "(I) love her to death." Anderson announced their engagement on her Web site on July 18.
So why the whirlwind nuptials? "It's just timing," Anderson told PEOPLE on Wednesday. "It's being in love, obviously, and it's time for me to move on with my life and get on with the rest of it with my kids."
The British Columbia-born Anderson has two sons, Brandon, 10, and Dylan, 8, with ex-husband Tommy Lee, to whom she was married from 1995 until 1998. Her kids were with her when she ran into Rock earlier this month. "It was so nice to see them," Rock told PEOPLE.
At their Saint-Tropez wedding, the bride planned to wear custom Jimmy Choo heels, according to a source.
Detroit-born Rock has a 16-year-old son, Robert James Ritchie Jr., whose mother is Kelly South Russell, a Detroit auto worker.
