Today on Stateside:

  • A special House committee voted to expel Republican State Reps. Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat today, but a vote for expulsion still needs to take place in the full House. Rick Pluta gives us an update from the House floor.
     
  • John U. Bacon talks the Wolverines’ rough start, MSU’s chances on Saturday, how the Lions are looking this season and what’s in store for the Tigers in this week’s sports roundup.
     
  • The 50th anniversary of The Fifth Estate is being marked with exhibitions at two Detroit Museums. Founder Harvey Ovshinky and a very early member of the team, Peter Werbe, join us to talk about the paper’s history.
     
  • The Turnaround Kid is back in town! Who and what is the Turnaround Kid, you ask? Detroit News business columnist Daniel Howes sits down with us to explain.
     
  • Theater has immense power to build community, although its power is often overlooked. Rachel Sussman and Katherine Carter share with us their idea for rebuilding Michigan’s theater legacy one artist at a time.
