    Nah, no doubts. But it was nice to see one of them say it (or write it) out loud for once.

    A fascinating piece of Detroit history that I never realized was sitting right in plain site. I never realized that the stables building on Belle Isle started its life before the Civil War as the...

    Yes, that's why they targeted only Indian students and arrested even people who transferred out of the scam program to a legitimate program once they discovered that there were no classes. And...

    Sorry our hateful intolerance or Mr. Rock's hateful intolerance offended your delicate sensibilities.

    Honestly, I will never understand anyone from Michigan that flies that flag or takes it up as a symbol. It shows a stunning degree of historical ignorance, and a disrespect for both the people who...

    What a ridiculous set of arguments. Education is about what you learn and what you make of it. I went to DPS schools, MSU, and an Ivy League graduate school. I'm quite happy to have attended all 3,...

    I agree with Meddle that every single person involved with this thing needs to be fired. Further, the people who conceived of this despicable entrapment scam and ran it should be in prison.

    Thank you for this rundown. I don't really disagree with any of it. Y'know, after 60 years of this stuff, and nothing to show for it, I think I may have had it.

    Arcadia!! Used as a roller rink for many years after the ballroom dancing days has passed. Ahhh, such great childhood memories of that Detroit 'elbows-out' roller skating.
