There is a '98 Saturn SL sitting on a frozen lake just outside of Iron Mountain, and the Rotary Club is taking bets on when it'll fall through the ice and be sunk. They do it every year, and there's even a live webcam on the car so you can furtively watch the action yourself.

Typically, we're used to seeing politicians wait to get into office before becoming criminals. Flint has raised the bar by electing two felons. And nobody reported that they were. Not a single newspaper, not a single radio or TV station.

The people of Detroit are taking no prisoners.

Justifiable homicide in the city shot up 79 percent in 2011 from the previous year, as citizens in the long-suffering city armed themselves and took matters into their own hands. The local rate of self-defense killings now stands 2,200 percent above the national average.

Police say a Detroit-area man had his 9-year-old daughter drive him to the store because he had apparently been drinking. Brownstown Township Detective Lt. Robert Grant said Monday the girl was sitting behind the wheel in a child's booster seat before 3 a.m. on October 8 when an officer opened the driver's side door of the full-sized panel van her father uses for work.

When Detroit's mayor snubbed the idea of a RoboCop statue for the city (like the Rocky statue in Philly), the Detroit Needs A RoboCop organization spun up and started taking donations to make it happen. They almost immediately hit their target funding, and the project is moving forward.

IO9 has a first look at the design for the statue, and interviews Pete Hottelet (a major investor in the statue, and founder of OCP [har har]) about the process, the project, and the future impact of having such a mascot for the city.

A federal grant for 6.7 million dollars is headed to Flint, with the stipulation that there are no more fire layoffs for 2 years. The 2 closed firehouses will re-open, 39 firemen will be rehired, and hopefully whoever has been torching the town will stop... probably because he's back at work.

Not only did Don Burke (alleged shooter of Capac Michigan's Police Chief) manage to fool the Police into surrounding his house for hours while he was escaping, once apprehended he got a free trip to the doctor. Come visit me and enjoy Capac.

Life in Hell just got a little easier for John and Sue Wilson. The couple, who live in the unincorporated town 45 miles west of Detroit, were blessed with a $115,001 windfall from the Michigan Lottery.

They won the big prize in the Fantasy 5 drawing held Wednesday - that is, Halloween.

It recently came to my attention that Ms. South Carolina is a student at Appalachian State University, whose dinky 1-AA football team beat the Wolverines last Saturday (sorry Timmy). Well, our local afternoon radio guy turned up this stunning recruitment video for Appalachian State, which no doubt played some role in luring the lovely Miss Upton to this, ummm, unique institution.
