More Local News

This comes from River Rouge, our next-door-neighbor city.

RIVER ROUGE -- Four firefighters have been suspended without pay for allowing three women -- one who was partially naked -- into the firehouse to take pictures of themselves on top of a fire engine.

Says Fire Chief David Chirillo, "One of the women had revealed her naked breasts to the men before she was allowed into the building, yet she was still allowed in. This is quite disturbing." (ed.: for certain less common definitions of disturbing)

Cue Jan Hammer...

Why the hell would Don Johnson have $8 Billion (US) in his suitcase? Talk about weird... I have a feeling this will turn out to be every bit as strange as the DeLorean case back in the 80's.
