    The economy of the UP is sort of isolated. I don't know about where you live, but if we lose the mines there isn't much else here except pulp logging. You can't support 300,000 people on that.

    If the worst happens, don't count on doing any deer hunting here. Mama will have the bugger baked up in pasties before we leave camp. So will my neighbors.

    Hey Lush, I spent some of the best years of my live in the Copper Country, at Michigan Tech getting my EE degree. I love that place, but I bet this winter has been hard. One year I was there we got the record snowfall of something like 28 1/2 feet. Have you seen the big thermometer on the side of the highway, or is it gone now. I think it used to be between Houghton and Calumet.

    Your time there is temporary, but you'll always have fond memories of the place I bet.

    I didn't get your location at first. I think you're saying that the UP is temporarily part of Michigan. Been hearing that one for awhile. I was a troll, but sure loved the Keweenaw.

    Well that was only a matter of time. Why wouldn’t Toyota, Mazda et al want in on this?

    Now that is has come out today that GM’s own auditors don’t think GM can survive what do you think of continuing to fund them. They are going to die, why throw good money (borrowed from other countries) after bad?

    Only if Toyota and Mazda are union shops and that is why they (foriegners) left where they came form to build cars in America.
