Re: No Greg Anthony on CBS today for MSU - Terrapins...reaso

That's a great question regarding his marital status; I do not know the answer.
I wonder how many harmless drug offenders are in prison vs. much more dangerous people still roaming free?
Me too. We have some screwed up priorities in terms of how the legal system functions in this country of ours.

Re: No Greg Anthony on CBS today for MSU - Terrapins...reaso

I actually agree with you. Too much is made of "johns." There are far worse types of conduct than one can commit than that, IMO. I just found it amusing that a former athlete who almost assuredly is a millionaire needs to resort to such tactics to get laid. The fact Anthony occasionally works with M...

Re: More incompetence from Lansing...

Perhaps I am guilty into buying into politicians' lines of bullshit over the years. I seem to recall various GOP pols making mention of large deficits during the Granholm years. The Governor, by Executive Order and with the approval of the appropriations committees, can reduce expenditures whenever ...

Re: More incompetence from Lansing...

Lester, to answer your question, under state law, the Treasury Dept. is forbidden from revealing the identity of any party who redeems tax credits. Here's the article discussing the $224 million as well as the point I just mentioned: http://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/politics/2015/01/16/treasury...

Re: More incompetence from Lansing...

Where was your $224 Million coming from? The Detroit News. It was mentioned in an article I read online this morning. I'm looking at these numbers and seeing a surplus as a good thing. Surplus? Where? You are right, if we *had* a surplus, that WOULD be a good thing. We don't. BTW, the big surplus w...

Re: More incompetence from Lansing...

I don't see the connection in the third paragraph of the Mlive article. In fact I see nothing but positive news in the article. I see no reference to $224 million, I don't even see that number, 224, in the article. No, I'm talking about the failure of the folks in the legislature and in the Governo...

Re: More incompetence from Lansing...

If it must be balanced at the beginning and balanced at the end you get cuts and layoffs or money in the bank. We cannot run deficits since it has to balance. What happens mid-year is absolutely irrelevent except in regards to how deep the cuts might be if they are needed. This does a great job of ...

Re: "At least we're not Detroit"

While I'm sure Atlantic City is a nicer place to live than Detroit proper, the comparison isn't exactly analogous these days.

Detroit is moving in the right direction with regard to economic activity; Atlantic City on the other hand is deteriorating.

Re: More incompetence from Lansing...

I thought we had a balanced budget amendment that makes deficits impossible? Huh? That's not true at all, and that is not what is stated on that web page you linked. The budgeting process is based on a forecast . Based on the forecast assumptions, the budget that gets passed must be balanced. Wheth...

More incompetence from Lansing...

Remember that ~$400 millionish surplus that never existed? Looks like we now have a $200 million to $400 million DEFICIT. Apparently Snyder and his Treasury Dept. suck ass when it comes to financial forecasting. (Rather ironic considering how the Gov loves to remind everyone every chance he gets tha...

Re: Ohio State deserves a chance at a national title

Impressive win last night for the Buckeyes. The folks who thought they didn't deserve a shot look awfully silly this morning (although that was already the case after they knocked off Bama).

Re: Sportsradio in DET will be unlistenable for the next wee

LMAO at Dez Bryant!!!! My heart just bleeeeeeds for his completion being reversed upon video review. I mean, he's such an upstanding, humble guy. The difference between this week and last week is the fact this time the officials were 100% justified in reversing the call. Clearly, Bryant did not main...

Re: Is 92.1 WQTX changing formats - County to Big Ticket

Yes, the original Ticket used Fox Sports.

For what it's worth, sister station WQLR 1660 in Kalamazoo is a Fox Sports affiliate.
