Is Donald Trump really demanding to be praised before sending Michigan COVID-19 aid? It sure looks that way.

I like our “woman governor” here in Michigan. I think that, given the hand she’s been dealt, she’s been doing a good job for the citizens of the state. I do wonder, however, how much better things might be for us right now if she’d spent a little more of her time over the course […]

Documenting Ypsilanti in the time of COVID-19

Michigan Republicans attempt a naked, lame duck power grab in advance of Whitmer, Nessel and Benson taking office

The Democrats, as you know, made huge gains across the midwest during this past midterm election.
