The MiWeek team talks about some of the issues that may show up on the 2018 ballot and what impact they could have on the Governor's race. And a Bridge Magazine report ties Detroit's home demolition blitz to an increase in lead levels in children. Christy talks with the reporter on the story, Joel Kurth, about this alarming report. Plus, the Kresge and W.K. Kellogg Foundations are pledging a total of $50 million toward improving early childhood education in the city. The team talks about the new Hope Starts Here initiative and the impact it will have on children and families. And finally, the team discusses Nolan's recent column about his experience trying to purchase a gun, and they talk about the reaction he is getting from readers.
