Michigan is still losing lots of blood because of unemployment

Nearly half of Michigan's people say an immediate family member has lost a job in the past two years, a new Detroit Free Press/WXYZ-TV poll shows. Barely one-third of us think the state's battered economy has begun to improve.

A new governor will be elected in November. Most of the current state legislators will be replaced.

Michigan's leaders will be gathering at Mackinac Island's Grand Hotel for a big shindig to talk about our state's future.

Will they do more than strut their stuff and drink cocktails or will they get the message from the recent poll-click the above link-about how almost half of Michigan has an immediate family member touched by unemployment?

Our state is still hurting.

How do we get more jobs? Less taxes or more?

Personally, I would opt for less.
