For this round of M I Curious, the Eloise mental hospital, our relationship with Canada, and Arab culture in Michigan rose to the top.

Update 5:30 p.m.

Voting for our first M I Curious question has closed and we have a winner!

Jeff Duncan of Sterling Heights asked us to look into the following question:

What was it that initially drew people of Arab descent to Michigan?

We'll begin working on this story this week and will have a report, or series of reports, by the end of this month. In the meantime, if you have some insights into the story, drop a note below.

And we'd like to give a nod to our other question askers this month: Derek Plumb, and Anna Argeropoulos.

All submitted questions still have hope of being answered – either by follow-up reports from Michigan Radio, or by answers from the community.

If you have a question you'd like us to look into, tweet it with the hashtag #micurious.

It's time for our first voting round for M I Curious!

(Can you tell we're a little excited?)

Last month, we asked you the following question on Facebook, Twitter, and on our website:

"What do you wonder about Michigan, the region or its people that you want Michigan Radio to investigate?"

People chimed in with what they're curious to know more about, and now it's time for you to vote on which question you would like us to investigate. 

Voting will be open for one week. After that, we'll investigate the question with the most votes.

The resulting story could be a radio piece, a multimedia online post, or an interview segment with Cynthia Canty – or it could be a combination of all three.

In our next voting round, we'll have a more robust website to handle your questions, comments and votes! Keep an eye out for it.
