Welcome to your Wednesday Hump Day edition of your Daily Detroit. Today we’re tackling:

  • Metro Times is out with a shocking story about violent threats made against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on several private Facebook groups. It comes as an armed rally is once again being planned for the state Capitol building in Lansing on Thursday. We have thoughts.
  • Some vacant Art Van furniture stores will be reborn as Loves Furniture, with about 1,000 people hired to staff them.
  • The Archdiocese of Detroit has set dates for reopening parishes, along with strict social distancing guidelines.
  • The New York Times editorial board dings states like Michigan that have relaxed Freedom of Information Act requirements during the coronavirus crisis.
  • Eastern Market is redesigning how its annual Flower Day will work.
  • And we hear from Cyndi Ross, restoration manager for the nonprofit Friends of the Rouge, about how the group is encouraging people to help the Rouge River this year by doing things at home.

Later in the show, your Daily Detroit team shares the edible things they’re craving that we can’t currently get. Because we’re almost two months into this shutdown business, and we’re all going crazy.
