Kym's Essays -
The Weekly Editorial
Gary Wilson's essay this week entitled Michigan focuses on the
economic plights of Michigan,
and looks at how the state government's tendency to "sell off its
natural resources" has played a role in causing this.
"While I haven’t
given up, I am struggling to be optimistic. Michigan’s problems are broader than a
tough economy. Its leaders seem to lack a certain vision and will to deal
with the new economic and environmental realities."
