Martha Reeves disses Jay Leno

Jay Leno‘s comic relief gesture is coming under scrutiny by the Detroit City Council.

One day after the NBC comedian announced a free April 7 show at The Palace of Auburn Hills for the unemployed, Councilwoman Martha Reeves questioned why it’s in the suburbs, rather than Ford Field.

Council President Monica Conyers designated Reeves, a singer and entertainer herself, as the point person to lobby Leno to move the show to within city limits.

The show is part of “Jay’s Comedy Stimulus Plan.”

Leno, a renowned car buff, called Metro Detroit “one of my favorite places.” He didn’t distinguish between the city and the suburbs.

My question, why is Martha Reeves trippin’? Jay is trying to do something good for the less fortunate folk in her city. Hell, Ford Field isn’t available anyway since the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship is being held there the night before and it takes a bit of time to get venues ready for major events. [via]
