Paczki Day!

My favorite local holiday has begun. Thanks to Hamtramck, the historically Polish city-within-the-city, Metro Detroiters will eat thousands of paczki -- delicious, high-calorie donuts -- before the traditional fasting of Lent. I don't plan to fast, but I will nevertheless indulge.

It's also Super Tuesday, an unprecedented near national primary when 24 states will hold primaries and caucuses. Far a political junkie like myself, that's far more exciting than Sunday's Super Bowl. I'll be eagerly watching the returns to see whether Obama can ride his rising tide of support to victory against frontrunner Clinton.

All in all, an exciting day.
