Michigan gets press in the New York Times

The New York Times had an article outlining the mass exodus of Michigan residents over the past decade.  While the article seems to be nothing new, the comments are quite similar to the original post that started this blog.

It seems that there is a mix of frustration and nostalgia out there.  People are angry and gone, but would like to come back.  This brings up the inevitable debate... Stay and fight or just leave?

More on that later.  For now, take a gander at that article and let us know what you think.
