Sadly, the two-pronged grade-school defense of "Nu'Uh" and "But he did it, too" will probably carry the day come November. With corporations as citizens, with jean-clad CEOs as governors and with an amnesiac public convinced that their problems stem from the quickly vanishing middle class, what's a non-billionaire to do?
Gary Peters is the only candidate who understands how important our response to climate change and our embrace of clean energy will be for Michigan.
Republican strategists' lips salivate when they think of population shifts to their state. This means more Congressional seats moving to their states and away from Democrat states. However, they may be surprised by the long-term results.
In the end, existentialism is about learning how to say, "it's just life," and moving on. And even though college may seem like the most important thing we will ever do, worrying about it can only make things worse.
The best work any artist can muster is the kind that comes from a place where career is never the driving force, age is just a number and one's relevance means little, except to himself.

With orange and red foliage sprinkling the ground, cooler weather and the smell of apple spices filling the air, we can't wait to head to some of our favorite fall destinations.
At the end of the day, I was ashamed at the fact that I originally saw the afternoon as an obligation, when it ultimately proved to be a privilege and an uplifting experience.
In a number of states across the country, including Michigan, Republicans are fighting progress and asking that their states be allowed to discriminate against people based on sexual preference by allowing gay marriage bans approved by voters and state legislatures to remain legal.
Looking above at recent temperature anomalies, much of the US is cooler than normal, but the eastern Pacific warm spot continues to prevent much rain from reaching California, which is hotter than normal.
It's time for Congressman Upton to once again reinvent himself. It's time to stop being a Dirty Denier$ and start being a clean energy champion for his state.
Ironically, Speaker Boehner resorted to the American justice system to sue President Obama, the very system he has worked relentlessly to underfund for indigents. Instead of suing Obama, he should start fixing the system he and his colleagues broke.
