Gov. Granholm trumpeted Governing magazine's story about Michigan being one of the best managed state's in the country.
When she said that I didn't notice if her fingers were crossed.
Oh come on. It's common knowledge that Michigan's various departments are really suffering.
The one I'm most familiar with is the Family Independence Agency. Child abuse and neglect workers, as well as foster care workers are overloaded with cases. Local offices are running with less than four cylinders. Is the job getting done.
If you listen to Governing magazine and the Governor, you hear "yes." Yeah, right.
The state of Michigan must have purchased a bunch of full-page ads in the magazine to get that kind of story.
