Eyes on Detroit, Cleveland

Two cities in our region are hosting some big events this week with a national audience.

Detroit will welcome basketball fans for the NCAA Final Four. I wanted to share this column by one of my favorite Detroit writers, Bill McGraw:

In it, he shares his impressions of what someone coming to the city for the first time will see.

Also, Cleveland is hosting the induction ceremony for its Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This is a pretty big deal for the Cleve, as the ceremony usually – to the anger of many in Cleveland – takes place in New York City.

This article from The Plain Dealer talks about the week-long celebration:

I especially enjoyed the photo of Ohio Senator George Voinovich shaking hands with Walter Williams of the O’Jays and Bootsy Collins of Parliament-Funkadelic.
