Oakland County Executive, L. Brooks Patterson, has recently come under fire after The New Yorker ran a piece on him called, "Drop Dead Detroit." Patterson claims the writer took some of his quotes out of context, but that hasn't stopped politicians and civil rights leaders from demanding an apology. Also, the calls to replace Dave Agema as Michigan's RNC rep are getting louder. Episode 245/S2
