Say. I have been thinking of what I believe would be a much more realistic approach to the political situation here in Michigan.
What would any of you think of splitting Michigan into two states? We could split it at about M-46 clean across the state and call the northern part Michigan and call the southern part Detroit (that would be like New York city and New York state). It would represent the political situation much more realisticly.
We could make Gaylord the state capitol of Michigan, putting it at an equal distance for most people.
Honestly, I believe that Detroit runs the state now and this is really not a fair situation for the outstate people.

That sounds like us down south. There's Atlanta and then we have the "Other Georgia."

I can throw a stone and hit M46 from my house...well almost. I think we need to seperate it on an east/west road, not north/south. I don't want anything to do with Detriot!!!!

Yeah, I'm 3 miles North of '46 myself.... If we cut it off there, who's going to support the bottom half?

Sounds like a Da--- good plan to me .
I think the guys in the U.P. would like it at the bridge though .
You can always tell a person from Detroit area for some reason .Must be their attitude.
We always say they come up here with a new shirt and twenty dollar bill and don't change either one all week .
naw , forget I said that I shouldn't talk like that .

Yes, they did talk about having it at the Mackinaw Bridge a few years ago but as I recall it was decided that it would not survive because there was not a sufficient economic base. If it were at M-46 the base would be large enough and the people are mostly of the same thinking as the folks in the U.P.
