Earlier this week, I received a couple indignant emails from friends who had learned that Rick DeVos, the founder of the magnificent international competition ArtPrize, was willing to pay three people $500 each to redesign Michigan’s flag.
Well, I was indignant too, but not for the same reason. They were upset because DeVos, one of the heirs to the Amway fortune, was offering so little.
“He can afford a lot more than that,” Becca said.
“Like his family hasn’t tried to buy the state already,” Tom chimed in.
Well, I don’t think that’s fair.
