Happy Friday, friends! On today’s show, we run down the new proposal by Lansing Republicans to fix the damn roads in Michigan. They want to borrow $10 billion against teacher pensions. What could go wrong?

Also, Jer tells us about his recent visit to the Jefferson Chalmers neighborhood on Detroit’s east side. Specifically, the flooded streets east of Jefferson, where canals that cut through the neighborhood from the Detroit River have topped their banks.

Lastly, what’s up with White Claw? Sales of the so-called “hard seltzer” — which tastes to me like a LaCroix mixed with vodka, blech — have surpassed those of all other craft beers save for Blue Moon. We discuss.

Thanks for listening to Daily Detroit. If you like what you’re hearing, tell a friend about us, leave us a review and subscribe on Apple Podcasts, or support us by becoming a Patreon member.
