Is Reformation Day still important?
Is Lansing's (MI) incumbent Mayor Virg Bernero in trouble because of anti-incumbent attitude?

Is Michigan's new state budget a fraud?

Read this column from Nolan Finley of the Detroit News about the recently adopted Michigan budget.

Is he right that Gov. Granholm and the whole Michigan Legislature flunked in passing a balanced budget?  He points to all the federal stimulus money used to pay this year's bills and how that only masks the true deficit.

Too bad both political parties will do nothing more than finger-pointing and loud bleating about how the other side is to blame. 

Is anybody really happy with this mess?  It's far from over.
