Michigan’s Depleted Funds So now we know why the Michigan legislators wanted to rush Proposal 1 down our throats.

Legality of Marriage & Divorce An article in the May 25th issue of Time reveals that: “We now have reached a point where fewer than half of kids leaving high school will have their parents living together.”

Cold Paradise Your May 18 cover story “Why is Northern Michigan So White?” is preposterous. For starters, we have plenty of diversity in this region: German, Polish, Swedish, Lithuanian, Norwegian, French Canadian, etc. – all groups that flourish in colder, harsh winter climates.

Unpave Those Roads Michigan legislators recently put before the people a proposal to increase tax to increase funds to the DOT and road commissions across the state for road repairs. The proposal failed by a significant margin.

Start the New Year with cool tunes for a good cause

Kristi Kates - December 27th, 2007
Start The New Year With Cool Tunes For a Good Cause
Promo agency Waxploitation brought together a plethora of musicians around the holidays to put on their fourth benefit auction for the victims of the ongoing conflict in Darfur, with 100% of the auction’s proceeds earmarked for Doctors Without Borders, Oxfam America, and Human Rights Watch. Participants got to bid on such items as signed guitars and other memorabilia from Bloc Party, Gorillaz, The Decemberists, Coldplay, Thievery Corporation, Gnarls Barkley, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Brian Wilson, and plenty of others. This particular auction may be over, but if you still want to help (and get some great tunes to boot), you can snag Waxploitation’s Causes 1 compilation CD, which is downloadable now on iTunes and which includes tracks from Bloc Party, International Noise Conspiracy, David Sylvian, Teargas & Plateglass, and more.
