http://dailycaller.com

Louisiana state health inspectors destroyed 1,600 lbs of deer meat donated by hunters to a local homeless shelter. The agency received a complaint that deer meat was being served at a mission. State regulations bar food establishments from serving hunted deer meat. Late January, the department discovered the deer meat — which had been appropriately processed at an area slaughterhouse — and destroyed it in a dumpster by dousing it in bleach. The Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission had been serving deer meat donated by area hunters for decades.

http://money.cnn.com

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder announced Friday that the state will take over the operations of Detroit's city government due to its long-standing financial problems.
