WXYZ DETROIT — Our editorial on this weekend’s Detroit Grand Prix prompted some interesting reactions. Aaron Rubel of Fairhope, Alabama wrote:

“For fans, (Belle Isle) had better views and great access for pit passes. Went to Grand Prix when it was F1 in the city and then Indy (cars) on the island. Enjoyed both venues…but rough road surface for the drivers on the island.”

John Esser responded on our station Facebook page:

“There will be infinitely better views in the city. Thousands of residences and offices with a view. “

Kadie Dominick of a Plymouth Real Estate firm wanted to know if Uncle Terry of the Wayne County Lyfe comedy group would be performing Grand Prix weekend.

Another viewer said:

“Yay!” with a thumbs up sign.

  • Pamela Waterbury Magruder

Daniel Latimer chimed in:

“My brother designed (this year’s race) the track!”

Another viewer wrote:

“We can finally use the Belle Isle Park this summer as it will be open all three summer months instead of closed.”

  • Marie Smithon

Our annual Brightest & Best editorial drew this comment from Carmen Williams who has a scholarly senior in her family. She wrote:

“Every year, I enjoy watching the Brightest & Best and look forward to seeing this year’s scholars.”

George Gordy said:

“There is no Brightest & Best. Everybody is equal.”

Several viewers and companies said:

“Congratulations to all the grads!”

  • Meemic
  • Marliss Cook
  • Charity Coleman
  • Ann Currie
  • Tina Watson
  • Lorena Hanks
  • Trycennia Angela CeeCee

And we received this succinct response from Pearl Walton in Calgary, Alberta Canada who must be watching on cable. She said:

“I loved it!”

That’s it for now. Thanks for watching and writing!
