    It happens. And I'm guilty of taking a free drink from a bar owner during a routine inspection and shooting the shit. But some of the liquor laws back then (and into today, even) are pure bullshit....

    Nah, no apology needed. Sometimes my wrong side gets up and is pissed off at the whole world. Such was the day I posted that. :)

    Police and prosecutors have been known to be lazy.

    Some great photos there, Dan! Thanks for sharing; just spent a delightful 45 minutes looking at them all. There are some great shots of Detroit down Woodward Avenue in the middle of page 13.

    Gotta be some major management changes, IMHO. Ideally, even an ownership change, but that's 99% unlikely. By the way, the Las Vegas sports books have the Red Wings at 500-1 to win the Stanley...

    Oh, it's fine. Just that I'm more into symphonic stuff. Always have been. Musical background starting about 1946, and, alas, Motown wasn't around then.................
