Old news.  That was on Monday.

Canadian authorities found 2 inert grenades:  https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/detroit-city/2021/10/05/2-grenades-found-white-powder-caused-shutdown-ambassador-bridge/6009378001/

Yeah well a local posted it today on social media. So I assumed it was now.  It still maybe news to many on here.

I remember once a girl I dated who didnít know Michael Jackson died until a week later. Considering that was even everyplace in the media, she never heard the news. Plus there are people everywhere that love to converse about old news.

I brought it up as a conversation piece as old or a couple days old, I find that interesting.

I didn't mean to excoriate you specifically.  Just that anyone coming here today shouldn't see it and think twice about using the bridge.  Even knowing that most people can't use it at the spur of the moment.
