Report dog fighting. Collect $5,000

There is a dog fighting operation in or around the Warrendale neighborhood in Detroit. I don't know much about it, except that dogs used in it have been dumped inside Rouge Park.

This is why I'm glad that the Humane Society of the United States is offering a $5,000 reward for information regarding dog fighting operations, such the one that has apparently set up shop in our neighborhood. I'm confident that $5,000 will unlock someone's lips - especially since you can collect it anonymously.

Anyone with information about dog fighting in Detroit or elsewhere is asked to call the Humane Society at 1-877-TIP-HSUS. Your identity will be protected and you can collect $5,000 for turning these people in.

Obama's chemtrails keep Detroit from record-setting snow

The snow that was supposed to hit Detroit today isn't coming after all. As one looks at the extended weather forecast, it becomes clear that Detroiters aren't likely to have anymore snow this season.

This, of course, means that Detroiters will not cross the proverbial threshold. We will not beat the all-time record for snowiest year in recorded history.

I think we can all agree that this is the fault of President Barack Obama. He had the guys doing chemtrail spraying work overtime in January and February to get us close to this record. But then, being the tyrant that he is, he had them stop just short of the record.

Curse you, President Obama! Curse you.
