Karen Majewski, Pol-Am historian and archivist, has been re-elected mayor of Hamtramck, Michigan -- once one of America's most Polish enclaves. Now Muslims of various ethnicites (Bengalis, Bosnians, Pakistanis, Kosovar Albanians, Yemenis et al) are gaining ground.

I used to go to Hamtramck many years ago. St. Florian's Church is awesome. On Joseph Campau Street there was a shop called Polish Art Center that was run by people named Kalenkiewicz.

Majewski? There was a physician in Toledo by that name. His office was close to St. Anthony's Church on Nebraska Avenue. My uncle, who was a cigarette smoker, was told by Dr. Majewski "If you are going to continue smoking don't bother coming to me anymore".
