Add one more item to Randall Hoven's list: the solar house left in the dark with busted pipes that froze over the winter. Shawn D. Lewis of the Detroit News reports:

Frozen pipes during the winter caused $16,000 in damage to floors, and city officials aren't sure when the house at the Troy Community Center will open.
"It's not safe right now, and there's no estimated opening time because it depends on when we can get funding," said Carol Anderson, director of the city's Parks and Recreation Department.
But their intentions were good. In Liberal Fantasyland, that's all that matters.
