The Friends of Rouge Park, along with students and faculty from Lawrence Tech, unveiled the early drafts of their master plan for Rouge Park recently. Rouge Park is, in my opinion, incredibly important simply because it is largest park in Detroit.
If you've ever had the feeling that your lifestyle changes amount to tiny drops in a very large proverbial bucket, I invite you to consider taking one of these 'Top 5 actions' to fight climate change.

Zelda Fitzgerald Crazy,
The Great Gatsby,
The "crazy" Zelda that has emerged in our popular imagination is as much Scott's making as The Great Gatsby itself. This is, in and of itself, part of the F. Scott legacy. His work depended on Zelda's silence.

Understanding how small this number is provides the key to understanding how likely -- or unlikely -- it is you will become the next big winner of the Powerball jackpot.
Of course it's no secret that many dog lovers regard their best friends as their furry children. So it's no surprise that dogs act the part, especially when it comes to being overly rambunctious, carefree, and well, just acting like a dog child.
With a goal to remove drug users and abusers from public assistance, lawmakers have potentially jeopardized the more than 120,000 medical marihuana patients in the state, some of whom rely on public assistance, disability and social security to survive.
I, for one, would not consider it a gross generalization to declare flying as an unpleasant experience for the vast majority of the Homo sapiens species.

Jim And Pam,
The good news: The Office has a legacy as large as its heart (and Dwight's head). It'll never really be gone, because it's changed, well, everything. It's inside us now. That's what she said.
