I was told by a friend that there was some sort of incident on Vaughn street at 6:00 p.m. yesterday – there were ‘at least’ 8 police cars, an ambulance, and a fire truck. My friend told me a police officer told him it was an attempted murder/suicide, whatever that means. I suppose like a lot of student drug overdoses and acquaintance crime in Ann Arbor – it will be quickly swept under the rug.

Local TV news picked up on the ELF story, probubly because it involves radical environmentalists doing crazy things, which sells well when your audience is mostly nervous sprawl residents seeking reassurance all this anti-sprawl talk doesn’t have anything to do with them. I love Detroit TV news – how’s this for objectivity: “This group has an agenda and has targeted homes in Superior Township in Washtenaw County. Ironically, longtime residents of Superior Township are trying to maintain the rural feel of the area, but this group obviously doesn’t care.”

Finally, sans sheriff alerted me to a new Free Press story about the strange events leading up the death of U-M student Jessica Smith.
