SLIPPERY SLOPE WATCH 2009 BEGINS TODAY.

TAKING OUT THE GM TRASH!

TAKING OUT THE GM TRASH!

OK Gang, here’s the deal.  We all knew that there were going to be some changes in how things were going to be with the new Obama administration, but now that they are starting to take effect, isn’t it interesting to see how some folks are reacting?  CASE IN POINT:  the new General Motors and Chrysler Bridge Loan plans announced in Detroit today.  It seems weird to me that the government can dictate that that the head of a company step down as a condition of getting financial backing.  In this instance I am referring to the Rick Wagoner situation with GM.  It seems odd that this is OK with a lot of people, but no one called for the leaders of the recently bailed out Wall Street and Banking firms to have to do the same.  It’s awful quiet out there right now about all of this.  I will, however, give guarded credit to Governor Jennifer Granholm for making a public comment about this situation on national TV by saying the federal government is making Wagoner out be the “sacrificial lamb” in this deal.  But I’ll say it again…it’s awful quiet out there, almost too quiet.  Just something to think about.

MAIN STREET MONDAY ROCKS!

SURREPTITIOUS MARK EVANS WITH THE MSM ENTRIES.

SURREPTITIOUS MARK EVANS WITH THE MSM ENTRIES.

Enough of the political clap trap for now, though.  We had a great response to our latest Classic Cartoon Trivia question on Main Street Monday.  Congratulations to Maria R. of Marquette.  She picked up two 14″ 3-topping pizzas from Main Street Pizza in Marquette, Harvey or Munising this morning by knowing that we were looking for the song stylings of the one and only PORKY PIG!

CALL IT A DAY!

Well, that’s another day in the can.  Who knows what tomorrow will bring?  I don’t, but I’m sure we’ll talk about then.  Have a good one!
