Good news for Detroit [Us] and good news for Detroit [Automakers - their more profitable guzzlers sell better]? Maybe not so good for the planet?

Is the fracking revolution maybe finally be having its effect? Not even the current Middle East turmoil is stopping the price slide. How does this affect you?

Hey wait. Here it is for $2.90.


Ooo... $2.88.


And the winner is $2.85. Fill 'er up!

one of my biggest problems with midtown is the east/west streets going through it.

currently there are 2 (read: TWO) streets that you can drive on without turning that will connect you from West of the Lodge to East of I-75 (Warren and Mack/MLK). Who the hell thought this would be a good idea?

on top of that MANY of the east/west streets within midtown constantly are shifting north and south, and there is no flow from block to block

here are just a few examples of Canfield and Selden streets

A big problem is the DMC campus. They don't allow a single street to cut through it and it made basically a giant mega-block on the east side of midtown

Another problem on the east side of midtown seems to be those giant suburb-esque developments near brush park and the DMC

If midtown wants to be fully walkable it would be nice to get some four-way intersections and not all these awkward 3 way ones where you're shifting north and south just to go east or west.

rant over.

This is expected to happen just before sunset, between 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM.

The weather forecast right now from the National Weather Service calls for Sunny skies (granted, there's never a guarantee with that in the Great Lakes region during October), so it appears most folks will be able to see it.

This photo was in the Historical Detroit Area Architecture Facebook group a week ago or so.

My grandfather played football for the high school back in the 1940s. I was wondering if anyone else had any memories of the school, or photos of the high school or football field from back then.

As The Detroit News packs up for the move to our new Fort Street location ...... the good news is that much of our archival material will be available for the first time for the public to see and use as research, because the bulk of it is going to the state Archives of Michigan, and is being digitized and preserved for our access, and the future.

One of the most interesting tools for genealogists and historians will be 2 million typed index cards that Pulitzer Prize winner David Ashenfelter said are "worth their weight in gold."

;);):rolleyes::rolleyes: This will be the most exciting yet! I'm so happy that this event is every year, I look forward to it always. In the past, living in the suburbs, we'd usually just head downtown one day for a few hours to check out the show then head back. This year will be my third year staying in a downtown hotel for a few nights. It's so much more relaxing than driving an hour in a snowstorm to get back! We usually pick the Courtyard, our "family" choice, but this year, we've chosen the new Crowne Plaza- and I'm really looking forward to it. What are you looking forward to in this year's show? Will you also be staying downtown? ALSO, I'm starting a daily countdown until the public NAIAS opens- today we're at 89 days!:D:D

I finally had the energy and proximity to visit Belle Isle again this Fall-gray morning.

It was peaceful, nearly all of the usual suspects were there...those souls whom I pass nearly every weekday morning.

I had a quiet stroll around the point, past ol' ItsJeff's besplintering memorial...past the battered remnants of another for Dean Osgood. Did some yoga by the new bridge on the way to freak beach. Another wonderful start of a day in strolling prayer and fresh-air meditation.

On the way out...far up the street by the ol' Police Station...four police cars flashed their new LED-obnoxiousness in a form of gauntlet. All but one of the lanes were blocked by these four, along with two others. One stopped in its tracks in the middle of the street.

I approached the only open lane cautiously, and was ready at any time to be approached...but saw a young woman being led to one of the cars. The trunk of her car had been rifled through, apparently requiring at least six uniformed witnesses. One of 'em had to glare at me while I drove through.

Innocent until proven guilty...sure thing. Tit for tat.

Sure would like to know the full story of this parade...it was an ugly way to end the perfect start of a day. I believe the city should license and copyright and trademark the name Belle Isle, but only allow the state to use it when they deserve it.

For the rest of the time, they should be forced to return to calling it Hog Island. Although some reliable old maps just call it Pig.
