Re: Whitmer Misses The Mark

I wonder if the Grand Traverse County Health Department knows that one of their committee members represents their organization the way you that do on the interwebs. Personally, I wouldn't be happy about it. With screen shots of your postings, it would probably take them about 14 seconds to figure y...

GT health department. I am on the regional Joint Operations Committee. Sift through the daily updates, and you will have all the truth you can handle. https://gtcountycovid19.com/ Enjoy. BTW, I'm married to someone who does this for a living, so much of what I source isn't coming from the media, it...

Every COVID exposure except 2 in our area in the past month came from a Metro Detroit visitor, based on contact tracing.
You'll need to source this, or I'm calling bullshit. No way that you are privy to that level of personal information except through second-handed gossip.

Re: Whitmer Misses The Mark

Another lockdown in the offing? The language she used today says no - overall the state is "still doing okay". I suspect it'll be more surgical, focusing more on establishments where alcohol sales dominate. Maybe pausing indoor dine-in too. So far, I haven't seen documented where there have been un...

... they walked this back. Those regions are showing increased risk for COVID-19 is all. In fairness to 7... FOX 2 had the same thing. This was the get your s*** together now because we're shutting you down notification. She will provide "clarity" in the next 24 - 48 hours, meaning they will be pus...

Re: Talk About Government Overreach

A 14-day quarantine for visitors from hot spots is very sensible. Making it mandatory (how?) and pulling people over because they have an out of state license plate (due process anyone?) is not. You think policing is a problem now? Try implementing a mandatory 2 week quarantine and pulling people ov...

Re: Gretchen the Media Queen

Of course not on the day Queen Gretchen was there. Minor or major there was still rioting. Oh puh-lease. Put the hyperbole machine on pause. Number of arrests and charges made for rioting: Zero What actually happened in Detroit was some agitators mixed in with protesters and everyone got a bit over...

Re: Sherry Margolis to retire from Fox 2

She graduated from high school in 1973, so she'll most likely be 65 this year.

Such a great talent. Trustworthy, calm, and never made her job about her. Seems like a lot of her on-air sparkle faded after her husband, author Jeffery Zaslow, died.

Hope she finds happiness in retirement.

Re: Whitmer Misses The Mark

It was an emergency stay -- meaning the gyms can't open until the court actually hears the case.

They haven't yet ruled on the merits of the case.

Re: Casting the Racists out of Nascar

One of the most confusing things to me about our society is our increasing inability to admit we were just wrong about something or someone. Apologize for the mistake, learn from it, move on. Sticking to the noose narrative (etc) just raises doubt when real hate crimes happen. There should be univer...

Re: Are movie theatres done?

Agreed.

Hollywood is going to have to step up its game and make movie going something special in order to get fannies in seats - even after (if) Covid fades into a bad memory.

So let me be sure I got this right....what you guys are saying is "I hope that after this incident all of those black people will stop overreacting to over 250 years of slavery, 100 years of Jim Crow, more than 50 years of the War on Drugs and voter suppression and all those statues and monuments w...

Re: Casting the Racists out of Nascar

Now what do we do ... all this outrage for a garage door handle that was tied into a loop. We actually spent taxpayer money to investigate a rope handle. #ban-all-rope-handles #pc-run-amok https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nascar/2020/06/23/nascar-fbi-details-noose-bubba-wallace-garage-talladega...
