SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

It's one of the most bizarre cases you've even seen. Judge Wade McCree is fighting to save his job after being accused of misconduct.

Geniene La'Shay Mott, the woman at the center of a sex scandal, appeared to talk about her relationship with Judge McCree. Attorney Tracey Martin was also joined us on that panel.

Plus, The Boy Scouts of America say it's okay to be gay if you're a Scout. The organization has voted to allow openly gay boys into the program. Some hope the vote will end the debate, but others say it's far from over.

Joining Huel Perkins and Charlie Langton on our panel to discuss were conservative radio host Ron Edwards, Affirmations Executive Director David Garcia and former Boy Scout and Scout leader Rev. Horace Sheffield III.

And finally, Charlie Langton took "Let It Rip" on the road and asked people whether teachers should get more money if their students do better on standardized tests.

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
