Each morning, Celeste Headlee scours the country’s newspapers for interesting stories. Here's today's list:

From The Denver Post:
They're experimenting with a new way to cut health care costs in Denver: group doctor visits. For patients who have been diagnosed with an ailment, they may get an appointment to have a doctor answer they questions about treatment, and find they are gathered in a room with five or six other people.

From The Detroit News:
Wayne State University has launched the nation's first graduate program to specifically train electric car engineers. It's partially funded by stimulus money.

From The Freep:
This is stunning, and I hope to God he doesn't get any money. After defrauding the people of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick is now asking them to voluntarily help him pay his fine. It's totally insane, but I bet some people will give.
