Leave a comment to let us know if you think the San Francisco 49ers or Baltimore Ravens will win the big game.

Leave a comment below to let us know if you think the Ravens or 49ers will win the big game (and if you like or dislike former Michigan quarterback Jim Harbaugh).
Are you—like millions of other people—ready for some football? More importantly, who do you think will win, the San Francisco 49ers or the Baltimore Ravens? The NFL will hold Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, and, though the Lions won’t be playing in it (as always), there are reasons for Michiganders to tune in to the big game. Michigan residents should love 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, who starred at quarterback for the Michigan Wolverines in the mid-1980s. (Unless, of course, you root against Jim because you are a Michigan State Spartans fan. Or if you are a U-M fan who remembers when Harbaugh took a shot at the school’s academic standards. Or if you are Lions fan who remembers Harbaugh’s infamous handshake with Lions coach Jim Schwartz.) So, are…

Leave a comment below to let us know your thoughts on light rail in Detroit.
Do you believe light rail is a good investment for Detroit? That’s the question this week after the light rail circulator project along Woodward Avenue in Detroit received $25 million in federal funding. The proposed 3.3-mile light rail circulator will have 11 stations on Woodward running from downtown to New Center, according to a press release. Light rail has the support of many business and political leaders, including Roger Penske, the chairman of M-1 RAIL, and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder. “Investing in infrastructure and transportation projects like this are absolutely vital to our economic recovery, and this important funding will make the M-1 project a reality and bring with it nearly 2,000 jobs for the region,” U.S. Rep. John Dingell…
