Stating the Obvious

This morning I read (yes, amazingly I am reading a bit on this vacation, in between the theme parks) an interesting article in the New York Times, about the measurable benefits of farmers' markets on poor families' diets.

This makes so much sense. But when our state government started slashing budget items, support for farmers' markets came on the chopping block.

Meanwhile our state legislators are probably hard at work passing a bill to ban even thinking about civil unions, or debating what to proclaim the state moss, or whatever else they do in Lansing while Michigan continues to swirl the drain.

I'm glad that you are having a good time in the land of amusement parks... and warm weather! It's one of my favorite vacation spots to people watch.

Right now... we are in the midst of a battle about our farmer's market... but other items like someone's driveway getting paved are always more important.
