A college friend showed me this article. It is a very well written, and as a native of Michigan, I especially enjoyed it. Here is an excerpt:
Do you think if your main industry sails away to foreign countries, if the tax base of your city dries up, you won't have crumbling houses and men sleeping on church floors, too? Do you think if we become a country that makes nothing, that builds nothing, that only services and outsources, that we will hold our place on the economic totem pole? Detroit may be suffering the worst from this semi-Depression, but we sure didn't invent it. And we can't stop it from spreading. We can only do what we do. Survive.
And yet, we're better at that than most places.
Hopefully, 2009 will be a good year for Michigan.

Yesterday, we had a great time playing games and celebrating New Years Eve at Uncle Don's house. Friends from church came over and we played games and rung in the New Year together.
Everyone had a good time. We are looking forward to all that 2009 has in store for us.
Happy New Year!
