    Special announcement: The first Michigan Travel Tips was put on the Internet--at The Hologlobe Press--in April 2004--and since that month, I have covered a lot of places in Michigan, and the range of places goes from Detroit to Copper Harbor, from Port Huron to Traverse City, et cetera, and I have covered the things of all types of people from the Amish to the Japanese, but there are some things that I have not covered and will not cover. I do not cover the casinos, and I will never report on any of the casinos in the state, since casinos do not create anything.  Also, I will not cover anything associated with ideologies that are against business!  That means, for instance, I will not report on any film festival related to Michael Moore (the filmmaker and pseudo reporter) at Traverse City.  Michael Moore puts down capitalism and the country, as he did on the national television show entitled on Larry King Live (hosted by Larry King) on November 19, 2008, so, for instance, it means he is really--when you analyze him--against the business people at Traverse City while he promotes his film festival at Traverse City (of course, that is the way of propaganda filmmakers, like those that Adolph Hitler used during the 1930s and 1940s in Germany); by the way, Michael Moore said on Larry King Live--"...And I think, really, what we're seeing here right now with them, with the banks, we're seeing the end of capitalism--the end of capitalism as we know it. And I say, good riddance--it hasn't helped the people or the planet...."  (Poor, Jeff. "Michael Moore Proposes Gov't Takeover of Autos; Good Riddance to Capitalism." Business & Media Institute, 21 November 2008, p. NA.).  Incidentally, Governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm has supported Michael Moore, such as by attending some of the film festivals of Michael Moore's at Traverse City over the last few years (which have been held at the State Theatre), and when you remember "like people get together," you can expect Jennifer Granholm supports the beliefs of Michael Moore (you should be aware Michigan is in a recession and has been before the economic crisis for the country started in mid-2008).  Remember: Michael Moore is responsible for such anti-U.S.A. and journalistically flawed films as Fahrenheit 9/11 and Sicko.

    When you travel in Michigan, you might not have in mind how the United States of America was founded.  It was not founded for a king or a messiah, and it was not founded so that you could trust in the leaders and you could be led around by the nose by the leaders.  It was founded for individuals by individuals--"We the People...."  And when you travel in Michigan, you might not remember how individuals died so that our federal government based on a constitution designed to protect individuals (by having, for instance, a "Bill of Rights") from politicians who might wish to be kings and queens and messiahs, and when you travel in Michigan, you can find evidence of those who died as individuals for the country.

    On September 11, 2001, several thousand individuals died because terrorists took control of three big jets and attacked the country--one group of individuals was able to take control of one of the jets from some of the terrorists and died in the process--and, in Michigan, there is a monument, though not big, that makes passersby remember all the innocent individuals who died on September 11, 2009.  At Lansing, there is a park in the area of Michigan Avenue and Grand Avenue, and the park is called Wentworth Park.  On September 11, 2002, a little monument was dedicated there, and, in essence, the monument is nothing more than a ten-foot-long piece of twisted metal beam that came from the World Trade Center, which had been destroyed on September 11, 2001, in an air attack by terrorists in two of the three hijacked jets.

    By the way, it was on September 11, 2002, that a "Michigan Fallen Heroes Memorial" was set up at the county government complex for Pontiac (of Oakland County in the Lower Peninsula), and this memorial was dedicated to the innocent individuals who died in the attacks of September 11, 2001.

    I am in a quandary, since I do not know what other places to talk about in this edition of Michigan Travel Tips, and the reason is I know not if people will still be around in a few months to see the places.  On February 1, 2009, an editorial in the Detroit Free Press had this title (in big letters) for an article: "Time's short for planet" ("Time's short for planet." Detroit Free Press, 1 February 2009, pp. 1C and 4C.).  It seems we are doomed and will all die soon. The editorial article--which I say was a "panic" piece--did not present any credible evidence of "global warming" or "climate change" or any logical information that showed why the planet will shortly be done for, but whoever put together the article must be right, since whoever wrote the story got the story published.

    In addition, now, my plans for a "bikini beach" business, where hundreds of great bikini gals could go, have been dashed; I was really interested in setting up a "bikini beach" place somewhere in Michigan, but now it seems I will only be able to get a place set up near the North pole for a few days in the very near future--before the planet dies and we all die.
