  1. Icahn heading to Florida to escape NY state income tax - should MI consider it?

    Saw in Bloomberg this morning that Icahn is moving and his company also (employees who don't move lose their jobs apparently) to Florida to escape personal income tax. Florida's corp. tax is 1% less...
  2. Maybe the answer is to get rid of the freeway...

  9. DTW McN terminal arrivals area bird poop, parking garage/shuttle bus - bad design
