    Let it Rip Weekend: Mayoral race and EM's 'dumb & lazy' comment

    Monday, August 5 2013 8:20 AM EDT2013-08-05 12:20:25 GMT

It was pretty cold this weekend, so maybe you took in a movie.  If you saw the number one movie in America this week, Oz: The Great and Powerful, you saw a made in Michigan product.  But did you know the state paid Disney $40 million to make that movie in Pontiac?  In the first part of Sunday's show, Charlie and Taryn discuss Michigan's film incentives with Jarrett Skorup from the Mackinac Center for Public Policy and Mark Adler from the Michigan Production Association.

In part two, Charlie and Taryn take on the death penalty, the topic viewers chose through the Fox 2 Facebook Page.  They moderate a debate between death penalty advocate Stacy Swimp, President of the Frederick Douglass Society, and attorney Richard Convertino, who used to support executions before being railroaded by the system himself.

In part three, a special treat.  Did you know wholesome artist Norman Rockwell did a nude painting?  It's the only one in the world.  Metro Detroit dentist Tom Sullivan bought it for $50,000 back in 1990, and he brings it in to our studio to show it off.  A Detroit woman, who's now 84 years young, was the model for the painting.
