The Reinvention of Michigan

So I was reading the Washington Post this morning and came across an article about the possibility of the Standish prison housing Guantanamo Bay detainees. As can be expected, there is a lot of debate about this, but I'm not really sure how I feel about it. A lot of the residents are actually for it, as the prison is set to be shut down, and it would potentially save jobs or bring people to the area to do the jobs, which is good news for the economy, I guess.

I personally just enjoyed the quote by Rep. Peter Hoekstra, who said, "Michigan can do a lot better than becoming the federal government's penal colony." Woohoo - Michigan can possibly be the new Australia.
