DETROIT – The ads are moving into heavy rotation and point to a rough and tumble race for the US Senate.

Republican John James talked about his race with incumbent Gary Peters on Flashpoint Sunday. James was introduced to Michigan voters two years ago in the Senate race against Debbie Stabenow.

And schools and universities point to reopening plans for the fall, even as the coronavirus is spiking in many states. Can we really make plans for the fall now?

Earlier this spring we talked with Wayne State University President Dr. M. Roy Wilson about the pandemic and its impact on the school, students and faculty. Matters of public health are getting Wilson back to his roots as an epidemiologist. He discussed schooling during the pandemic on Flashpoint.
