A Big retirement
If there could ever be a silver lining to an election loss, U.S. Rep. Joe Knollenberg might find some solace in the retirement of the "Big Head."
The head is a massive papier-mâché piece used to taunt Knollenberg at protests, parades and debates. It bears an uncanny resemblance to Knollenberg, the Bloomfield Township Republican who lost his congressional seat to Democrat Gary Peters. Bruce Fealk, the Rochester Hills Democratic activist and chief thorn-in-the-side of Knollenberg, isn't sure what he's going to do with the head.
He may put it on eBay and auction it off with the proceeds going to help pay for the medical expenses of a fellow liberal activist, "or I may just throw it a retirement party."

Freep Covers The Head's Retirement
Democratic activist Bruce Fealk said he isn't sure what he's going to do with the head that bears an uncanny resemblance to Joe Knollenberg. "It's a little bit hard on my back sometimes, but I won't have to wear it anymore," Fealk said.
