Stateside for Thursday, November 5, 2015


Today on Stateside:

  • This week, Michigan Republicans marked the second anniversary of their outreach office in Detroit. The concept of selling the GOP in solidly Democratic Detroit and opening an outreach office there came at a time when more Republicans on the national level called for the party to be more inclusive.
  • MSU's Eli and Edyth Broad Art Museum celebrates its third birthday next week. In his story for Lansing City Pulse, Larry Cosentino spells out the reasons the Broad is at a critical time in its young history.
  • The Great Depression really marked the golden age of leftovers. Whether meant to be slipped into a pot pie, suspended in a jello ring, or buried in a casserole or a meat loaf, there's a lot to be learned from studying Americans' relationships with leftovers.
  • The Michigan Historical Museum in Lansing has opened an exhibition focusing on Webster Marble, “the greatest Michigan inventor and entrepreneur that nobody’s ever heard of.”
  • All week long, Detroit News Business Columnist Daniel Howes has been accompanying more than 20 Michigan CEOs as they examine the thriving economy of Israel looking for lessons that can be applied to Michigan, to Detroit. Howes joins us today from Tel Aviv.
