And now Midland

I moved away from MI more than 20 years ago, but my family still lives there so any news catches my eye right away.

I've never even been to Midland but this reduces me to tears. I grew up watching TV stations that announced their call letters and the area they served: "Flint, Saginaw, Bay City, Midland" so it's like it is part of my home town. The same with the shooting of the Family Dollar - I've never been there, it was built after I left, but I have a connection in spite of that. I saw the horrific aftermath when Vassar flooded and drowned many years ago.

This is shouting into the wind, but I really wish that Michigan would stop making the national news.

1. We don't want to either....

However, we have no control over nature. Sorry!

2. I know

I'm just worried about my fellow Michiganders. You can take the person out of MI but you can't take the MI out of me.
