While in Downtown Lansing this afternoon, I noticed something amiss across the city's skyline that instantly reminded me of Back To The Future and "1.21 gigawatts". The iconic clock tower downtown atop the Boji Building apparently stopped working at exactly 4 o'clock some morning or afternoon in the not-so-distant past.

There is no word of a cause, and no proof that lightning had anything to do with the malfunction. Be sure to check back frequently as we dig up more details. Hopefully, Lansing's clock tower will be fixed within 30 years, unlike Hill Valley.
