I interrupt my regularly scheduled programming (Detroit to Brooklyn to Philly) to bring you a little Michigan shout out. I do love my home state and sometimes travel can make you forget that. Tonight, I went to a somewhat dorky, but also awesome birthday/historical gathering for Stevens T. Mason, the first governor of Michigan. We lit sparklers, we drank beer and we talked about history. It was awesome. I have cool, smart friends. I'm looking at you, Amy Elliott Bragg. Amy writes this great blog called The Night Train. If you're interested in history, specifically Detroit history, you should check it out. She has a way of making it fun. Anyone who can speak so naturally about history, impresses me. My brain just doesn't work like that. Hat tip to you, Amy. You're awesome.
I love Michigan. The end.
