MY REVIEW: The newly-released movie Courageous about fatherhood and fatherlessness
Here in mid-Michigan I just filled my tank at a Shell station for $3.19 per gallon

Who are Michigan's governors-in-training?

Michigan hasn't had a governor leave after one term since the early 1960s, but current chief executive Rick Snyder may end up doing just that.


Gov. Rick Snyder says he may only serve one term as Michigan's governor and then do something else.

This story in today's Detroit Free Press says his record shows that he hasn't been tied to one job for any extended period of time.

Who's in the wings that would be qualified to take our state's top political job? Are there any almost shining political types with the vision and the skills to take us to the next leve? Who?  A woman?  Somebody with or without political experience?
