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.

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 ;)
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov
