I am a big fan of print newspapers, and a current subscriber to the big papers in this town. To my chagrin, when I tried to contact the News/Free Press to let them know my credit card number had changed, they put me in line to speak with an operator - that was 17 minutes ago. Are they actively trying to go out of business or what? Have other people experienced this lately? Maybe this is how Michigan.com will operate. I didn't have similar issues with the Detroit Media Partnership. You'd almost think they were being run by Andreas Apostolopoulos.

Should the Metro-Detroit area reduce the use of salt ?

Road salts known under various chemical compounds
(sodium chloride, calcium chloride, potassium chloride,
magnesium chloride, and ferrocyanide salts) are toxic.
In the USA deicing salt is considered a pollutant via
National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).

Chloride concentrations (salinity) in lakes across the USA
have steadily increased over the past 50 years, compared
a near zero concentration in the 1950s,
when road salt application began upon the nations roadways.

Nearly 5 Million people live around Metro-Detroit, Michigan
and another 5 Million people live around Windsor, Ontario.
10 MILLION people concentrated near Fresh Water Lakes;
just in our little section of the geography…pass the salt ?

In the last 24 hours someone has vandalized several murals in Eastern Market, part of the Detroit Beautification Project (DBP). The murals vandalized were on the Omnicorp Building and both sides of 1550 Winder Street. These murals were commissioned by each building owner and were untouched since their inception in 2012. This is pathetic, I don't care if you like street art/graffiti/whatever you want to call it, you don't go over someone else's piece, let alone building, after the motive of the DBP was to inspire and create some positive in the city. See below for pictures. Speechless, just plain out speechless.

Beyond politics and games in the school yard, what will be the immediate and long term fiscal cost? Retirements, healthcare etc. Silence.

Course most of the media questions and reports revolve around 'what will the republican response be?' 'what will the republicans do?'... how will they feel, etc. The partisan wheel is spinning again ignoring the full impact of executive amnesty. Do all Hispanics citizens/ community think alike re. illegal immigration? Doubtful...

From article:
Washington (CNN) -- President Barack Obama is set to unveil his long-awaited overhaul of U.S. immigration rules -- potentially shielding millions of people from deportation -- Thursday in an 8 p.m. ET speech from the White House.

The impending actions are fraught with both political controversy, as Republicans lambast him for circumventing the legislative process to declare "executive amnesty." There's also intense interest surrounding who, exactly, among the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants will be covered.
Here's our guide on what to watch for during and after Obama's speech tonight...

http://www.cnn.com/2014/11/20/politi...iref=allsearch

What would Obama's executive order do?
Which parents stay and which ones go?

Will there be age limits?
ETC....

I remember a few stories in recent years about an investigation. I didn't know it had already gone to trial. I would have figured that there would have been some kind of settlement before it got to that level.
