Thanks for the link.  Ours is in two weeks. And our eldest is now a teenager with size 13 feet, so new shoes will be needed.  :)

What a concept...lower or eliminate taxes...increase sales and economic activity. Outrageous.

Why am I not suprised that Michigan is not participating in this?

Aurelia,

I'd comment on your statement there, but the opinions of a through-and-through Buckeye with regards to anything "michigan" should be obvious ;)
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
