Dearborn puts limits on what a garage can be
There's been a new development in the debate over garages in Dearborn.
You may recall some residents in Dearborn have been using their garages as gathering spaces, some equipped with sliding glass doors, couches, refrigerators, water pipes, and TVs. This has been especially popular with Dearborn's large Arab community.

Jeff Karoub has been covering this debate for the Associated Press and he joined us today from Detroit.
