Report: Detroit Has Computer Problems - (DETROIT) -- The City of Detroit's multi-million dollar computer overhaul is being stymied by failures of leadership and training. That's according to a report released to the city council yesterday. The "Detroit Free Press" says the 70-page report calls for city officials to undertake an immediate set of of stabilization measures to make the 80-million-dollar system run smoothly. The report blames human error for most of the system's problems.
