Temporary Hiatus. The eBlog will be temporarily suspended whilst its writer returns to Africa. Years ago, he served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Juba, now known by its new name South Sudan. The eBlog writer will visit Zambia, Botswana and South Africa–the latter of which is experiencing its own issues with severe municipal fiscal distress…. In the nonce we wish you a good holiday honoring so many who have served the nation with their lives.
“I hail from southwest Michigan, but today I stand with Detroit and its path back to prosperity…By settling Detroit’s bankruptcy, we save taxpayers billions of dollars. If we don’t, we could be on the hook for a lot of money.”
~ Michigan state Rep. Al Pscholka, R-Stevensville.
