I really want to believe Gov. Granholm's great enthusiasm for the just-around-the corner potential for Michigan's economy. But, it just ain't so from everything I see, hear and read.
Take this morning's story from the Detroit News about how the store of choice for a growing number of Michigan citizens is a thrift store like the Salvation Army or the Society of St.Vincent DePaul. They sell other people's discards.
There's nothing wrong in using second-hand stuff, but the fact that thrift stores are becoming the place for many to shop out of financial necessity should be alarming.
I guess I'm thankful that these stores are there and serving people's needs.
