      Careful what you text

      Like a lot of folks, I assumed that the shear volumn of text messaging meant that no cell phone company would bother to archive them. I guess Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick assumed that. Apparently we were both wrong. Except that Kilpatrick apparently lied about having an affair with his top aide, and then the messages proved otherwise.

      My messages would have revealed nothing more exotic than the progress of my daughter's college applications. I guess no one will be trying to subpoena my texts.

      But to find out who keeps text messages, we sent NBC24 reporter Arielle out on a Fact Finder investigation. Look for her report soon.

      In other matters: my basketball bracket is tanking. I told you so.
