- When you woke up Sunday morning, November 27th, did the air you breathe smell a little bit fresher?  Did your food taste better that day?  Perhaps the pain in your hip disappeared? Your dog stopped chewing on your sneakers?  You found a missing $20 bill in your jeans pocket?  You suddenly realized you have more work vacation than you had previously thought?  Your car stopped making a strange noise?  Construction ended on a stretch of freeway you use every day?  This is why:
 FINALLY!!! After eight long, unbearable years of gut-wrenching madness, Michigan defeated The Great Evil.  The universe has been set right.  Love, joy, happiness and purpose return to our lives.
