It seems that our readers were interested in digging up some old news about a very interesting screenname a man had during a virtual hearing back in May. And quite a few readers were interested in the advice Dan Savage had to offer in this week’s Savage Love column.

People were most interested in the history of Boblo Island and the story those boats told in the new documentary, Boblo Boats: A Detroit Ferry Tale.
