Ann Arbor as Center for the Driverless Car: Mcity, as opposed to the Motor City

Michigan’s New Motor City: Ann Arbor as a Driverless-Car Hub.  (The New York Times, 7/9/2017)
And Ann Arbor is not alone. Thanks to its long automotive history, Michigan is the site of a broad array of research efforts and development centers that are focusing on connected cars and autonomous vehicles. In addition, Michigan has passed laws clearing the way for extensive testing on public roads — even for self-driving vehicles that have no steering wheels — and has equipped more than 100 public highways with electronics to facilitate testing of connected cars and self-driving trucks.

Because we can't forget the Motor City.

'Dancing in the Street' -- it's singular. Drake P -- by Martha and the Vandellas debuted at #68 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending August 22, 1964.  It spent 14 weeks on the chart, peaking at #2 for 2 weeks.
