Kinda surprised it took this long...

My father sent me this news item today:
Two firefighters hurt as blaze doused at old Redford High School | The Detroit News | detroitnews.com
Detroit— Two firefighters were injured battling a two-alarm blaze that has been extinguished at the former Redford High School.
Fire officials received a call at 9:56 a.m. Thursday and found the three-story brick building ablaze.
No one was inside the building at the time of the fire but the school suffered extensive interior damage, Detroit fire Lt. Gerod Funderberg said. The blaze began in a second-floor gymnasium.
Funderberg said the two injured firefighters were taken to the hospital. One suffered from heat exhaustion and the other suffered a twisted knee, he said.
Meijer Inc. plans to build a 217,000-square-foot retail and grocery store at the site at Grand River Avenue near Six Mile in Detroit.
The company's plans call for demolishing the school, which opened in 1924 and closed in 2007.
Does Ted Nugent know that our alma mater caught fire?  Does he know it closed, and is going to be turned into a Meijer's Shifty Takers Thrifty Acres?  Does he care?

Note I don't ask if he knows that he and I went to the same high school. Let alone cares...

I went to the same High School as Grace Slick! ;-) And Erle Stanley Gardner... I can only wish it would burn-down.
