A Region in Revolt
Sorry for the late post; the family and I traveled up M-53 to Port Austin for a little vacation. (It's my secondary "Happy Place" next to Mackinac Island...let me know if you need travel tips.)
But I'd be remiss not to post a few stories of note this week:
* Q&A with Dave Bing from Nolan Finley of The Detroit News (Damn, Nolan, you're writing some good stuff these days). Love the headline of "Bing: 'I'm not going to showboat.'"
* Take some time to check out Steven Gray's piece on Warren Evans as part of this here Assignment: Detroit in Time magazine. It's a great feature and a great news story all in one. (I'm not paid to say any of this.)
* And The Detroit Free Press should be proud of the work Rochelle Riley has been putting out there recently. She's giving Detroit such a voice in the past few weeks, really putting feelings into words like no other. Check out this column about our region's future, which gives Brooks Patterson some heart to go with his (sometimes) harsh words for the city:
"I understand now," Patterson said. "We now are linked more clearly than I imagined early on."
