I see a lot more of this lately, and not just at DetNews.

"It was the space shuttle of its time," Kozura says.And no, it doesn't look like this:
Together, these authentic parts are being assembled in a suburban garage and basement in west Michigan into what Kozura says will be the finest airworthy Sopwith Camel reproduction in the United States.
The average household in Michigan will pay as much as $525 more in taxes in 2016 if Proposal 1 is approved by voters on May 5, according to a study by the Mackinac Center for Public Policy.I'm a pretty typical Michigan household (family of 4), and I know I could use $525 in better ways than these blundering politicians can. I have a kid going to college next year, and that would buy a lot of books for her, for instance.
The study estimated that increasing the sales tax from 6 percent to 7 percent would cost a typical Michigan household $389 and the change in the fuel tax would cost between $88 and $136.
California Gov. Jerry Brown on “Meet the Press” on NBC called Cruz “absolutely unfit” to seek the high office, mostly because of his views on climate change.That's pretty rich, Jerry, considering the long and storied history of falsified data from the true believers in global warming.
“That man betokens such a level of ignorance and a direct falsification of scientific data,” Brown said, just hours before Cruz made his Twitter announcement. “It’s shocking and I think that man has rendered himself absolutely unfit to be running for office.”
During one event highlighting the “Safe Roads Yes” campaign Snyder held up a chunks of what he said was from crumbling roads and bridges. “Can you imagine one of these coming through your windshield?” he said for effect.For myself, I'll say it again - Fix the problems with State Government bloat and overreach before you come for any more of *my* money. MEDC and the Dept. of Education are two good places to eliminate if you want to find some more money.
It seems disingenuous and a bit silly at this point to be preaching doom and gloom and telling us frankly we could die- I mean how long have these people been trying to fix the roads anyway? And when they finally arrive at a $2 Billion dollar tax hike solution they lack the political courage to figure it out themselves. No, instead they send it back to the people… you know the ones that elected them to solve tough problems in the first place. At first I thought that was a good idea. Of course that was when I thought they actually intended to put the money, all of it, toward roads. That is a long way from the reality.
In fact only about $1.2 billion is actually intended to be used for roads and that won’t happen until at least 2018. The rest is why so many people despise politics and politicians because it is a pile of other spending that has exactly nothing to do with saving our lives from concrete falling out of the sky. According to the House Fiscal Agency $600 million a year would go to schools, cities, mass transit, the state’s general fund and tax breaks in the form of more earned income tax credits. With a debt far north of $75 Billion dollars it seems more likely our financial house will crash in on top of us before a stray piece of concrete gets us.
