If I asked the well-informed Michigan Radio listeners to name the mayors of Ann Arbor, Birmingham, Flint and Grand Rapids, and those cities' most critical electoral issues, I expect that very few could do it.

“I think I am going to throw away my I Love New York carrying bag now that queers can get married there.”
