It seems that our readers are still interested in what happened at the Birmingham Board of Education meeting last week, as a lot of you are still clicking to find out the identity of the man who flashed a Nazi salute during the meeting over mask mandates for student and staff. A few readers are also interested in the backlash Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido faced after photos surfaced from his birthday party earlier this month.

The new stories our readers were most interested in is the irony that is “White Boy Rick” launching his own cannabis brand with Pleasantrees, a Northern Michigan restaurant requiring proof of vaccination, and the corruption probe of Detroit City Council.
