You may think this bizarre, but towards the end of Gov. Rick Snyder’s emotional State of the State speech. what popped into my mind was a scene from the epic movie Braveheart.
William Wallace, the medieval Scottish hero, has just eloquently rallied his men to take on a vastly superior British army.
“Fine speech,” one of his lieutenants said. “Now what?”
The governor’s future, as well as that of Flint, will be determined by the “now what,” of this crisis. In the movie, the hero tells his men “Just be yourselves.”
