I got robo-called twice today. The second time there was no message left. The first time it was the widow of Bo Schembechler, the late and legendary coach of the University of Michigan football team, asking me to vote for someone in particular for the university’s board of regents. Really? They went there?
Mind, I don’t even know why we vote for university boards. We vote for three: University of Michigan, Michigan State University, and Wayne State University. How many voters know enough about the issues confronting large universities to vote for a board member? I’m glad we don’t have to vote for the boards of the other 15 public universities in Michigan. The result is the same either way, a bunch of rich political flunkies, most of them white.
I’ve gotten a flyer from the same local judge candidate every day this week. Today she says her opponent has been saying bad things about her. Well, s/he must’ve been using some other medium, because the print shops have been taken over by printing her literature over and over and over.
OK, it’ll all be over Tuesday. Just take deep cleansing breaths and mute the telephone….
