I was watching a tigers game the other day and noticed several crains towering above the park to the northwest. Any idea what's going on? All i could think of was it was more demo going on behind the Fox.

C'mon folks, correct spelling is optional in today's society... as are civility, and wearing clothes.

I knew about the casino's. I thought it was something new though because I didnt remember seeing them there before, and the MGM and MotorCity cranes have been up for quite a while. Sorry guys.

As a teacher I must say, correct spelling is not optional in today's society.

Right, I still remember the three cardinal rules I was taught in fourth grade:

1.) We will all be expected to write in literate, smooth, error-free cursive in ink as adults.

2.) Red meat is good for you.

3.) Good grades are important in later life.

Every one a-true.
