Today’s Martin Luther King Day march to Rick Snyder’s home

I wasn’t able to attend today’s MLK Day march to Governor Snyder’s house, but, fortunately, I was able to draft a few correspondents. Our first report comes courtesy of EMU professor Abby Coykendall.

The developments around the Occupy movement are occurring so quickly now that it’s hard to keep track. I’d like to be able to share things as they happen, but, given the realities of life, and the fact that this blog is just a one man operation, I don’t think that’s going to happen. With that […]
