Bullets over the bay?

Zones being proposed to allow training exercises in Lake Huron

Thursday, August 24, 2006

If you hear machine guns on the Saginaw Bay, the sound may be coming from the U.S. Coast Guard.

The agency, part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is proposing to create 26 ''safety zones'' throughout the Great Lakes, including six in Lake Huron.

The closest two to the bay would be east of Tawas City and north of Port Hope in the Thumb.

If the Green Revolution is a bloody pulp today, it is not just because the environmental movement mugged itself. It is because the corporate, political, and religious right ganged up on it in the back alleys of power.
