Though no more articles drop into our well of over 30,000 archived posts since 2012, "The Week That Was" continues beyond this news site's lifespan.
New freewheeling discussions can be seen each Friday at 11:30 a.m. on Facebook at Deadline Detroit TV, Deadline Detroit and our YouTube channel. Saeed Kahn, an associate professor at Wayne State, moderates the lively one-hour programs.
Panelists typically include Deadline co-founder Allan Lengel and staff writer Nancy Derringer, as well as columnist Greg Bowens most weeks. Guest viewpoints this summer have come from M.L. Elrick of the Freep, radio host Adolph Mongo, ex-mayoral chief of staff Alexis Wiley, former assistant federal prosecutor Michael Bullotta, attorneys Steve Fishman, Tiffany Ellis, Bill Seikaly Sandy Plotkin, Joel Sklar, Portia Jones and past Michigan Republican Party co-chairman Jeff Sakwa, and political consultant and attorney Vanessa Moss.
They share observations, disagreements and wisecracks about newsmakers and events in Michigan and beyond, along with choices for Schmuck of the Week.
We hope you catch Deadline Detroit's continuing video series for provocative programs each week.
