Re: E-M:/ Let the governor be governor

Enviro-Mich message from "Mark Richardson" <Mark.Richardson@co.macomb.mi.us>

I believe Churchill said "Democracy is a very bad form of government.  Sadly, all the others are so much worse."

RE balance:  There are several options.  The ag commissioners, by statute, 
must include 2 dems 2 reps & 1 independent.  On the other hand, many 
committees are sorted out into interest groups eg industry, agency (often non 
voting), enviro, medical, and other affected publics depending on the 
commission.  Not bad and as Fred said, I think, democracy isn't necessarily 
efficient - but as Winston C once said, it isn't so good until you look at 
all the other options.  If anyone recalls Churchill's quote on the matter, 
I'd appreciate it.
