Michigan's at-risk kids are a little safer with Jack Kresnak's return to the Detroit Free Press

I noticed this morning while reading the online Detroit Free Press that a story about a dead infant in Detroit was written by Jack Kresnak.  That's a real "Praise God" moment for at-risk kids in Michigan.

He reports and writes about abused and neglected kids with a passion and an advocacy that's not seen much in journalism these days.

Kresnak returns at a point while the state of Michigan is waiting for Gov. Granholm to appoint a new children's ombudsman for the state.  The position has been vacant for more than six months.  There are concerns that she will leave the position vacant and let the office become so impotent that it will be shutdown.  I hope that's not true.

The Free Press is the only state newspaper that has written about the whole child protection and child abuse and neglect issue on a regular basis in the state.
