YOU VOTE: Should it be harder for the Michigan Legislature to raise your taxes?
It's too easy to write-off Michigan ballot proposals as "political bullshit"

Who could spit a cherry pit farther, President Obama or Mitt Romney?

This was the first time I ever heard about cherry pit spitting competitions with the international version happening right here in Michigan.

It got me to thinking after reading a story about the competition in the Detroit News about how a contestant one year spit a pit more than 90 feet.  Think about that, the size of the pit and how far that is.  That would be a remarkable feat.

Just how remarkable are our politicians?  How far could they spit a cherry pit.  President Obama?  Mitt Romney?  Members of Congress?  Members of the Michigan Legislature?  City Council?

I think I'm ready to go to Meijers and buy some cherries.  

Is this possible event for the next Olympics?
