Window, middle, or aisle – which is your preferred seat on an airplane?

When I think of Detroit, I think about…
Memories of attending MIS on Belle Isle with my dad.
What’s the best article or book that you’ve read about Detroit?
Honestly I read the local Detroit Newspapers since I grew up in Metro Detroit so I have probably read a high number of both positive and negative articles.
Detroit is the home of ‘Motown’. If you started a Motown group, what would you name it?
I have no idea – I spent a considerable amount of time thinking about it after reading the question and just couldn’t think of anything. I figured at that point I should get back to work.
Who is the most famous person in your cell phone contacts?
Local Sparta celebrities – School Superintendent, local CEO’s or business owners.
