"Deal Is Said to Be Close in Detroit’s Bankruptcy" (UPDATED)

New York Times story here.

In other DIA news, "a pair of Oakland County politicians are poised to take action against the Detroit Institute of Arts after it was revealed last week that the taxpayer-supported museum handed out double-digit raises to DIA leaders in 2012."

UPDATE:  Judith Dobrzynski on the raises issue:  "Optics matter in cases like this. It’s going to be sticky no matter what happens, but I think the DIA board should reconsider–and either make its case publicly or find another solution."
