The topic of his most recent editorial? Detroit’s bike lanes, and how, along some major thoroughfares, protected cycling lanes have appeared. Normally, it's the sort of thing that would inspire a reporter to pick up a telephone, find the responsible parties, and ask all sorts of questions, then process the information and present these explanations to the publication’s readership. Not Keith Crain. He admits right up front that he has no idea who conceived of the plan, what exactly it entails, guesses nobody has seen it, and then proceeds to tear apart what he supposes it to actually be. What follows is a wheezy jeremiad containing careless second-hand assertions, faulty contentions, childish conjecture, and shameless hyperbole, with a chewy center of … [Read more...] about Keith Crain really, really, really doesn’t approve of bike lanes

With weeks of auditions now in the rearview mirror, the time has come for American Idol's season 12 to dive into the always dramatic Hollywood Week. What of those contestants who audiences have been cheering for the last month? Some familiar hopefuls who got scads of face time -- like ginger soul singer Karl Skinner -- were quickly eliminated in the first ten minutes, as were many, many other Golden Ticket recipients deemed not compelling enough to make it through an edit. Indeed, half of the 277 male contestants were shown the door after singing in group lines of ten -- then director Ken Warwick and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe emerged to inform the contestants that the producers will be deciding each group's members.
