Pure Michigan/Not So Pure MichiganThe State of Michigan is forking out $25-Million per year to support a
tourism program named: Pure Michigan.
A group of advertisements appear on televison promoting: Pure
Michigan. Tim Allen who starred in the American T.V. program:
"Home Improvements" is the narrator. Allen, who is a graduate of
a suburban Detroit High School and Western Michigan University,
which is located in Kalamazoo, (where have you gone "FiggsKazoo"?)
is rolling in a good amount of the taxpayers money for this gig.
Recently a new website has appeared.
A cynical, hilarious look at the REAL Michigan, which is far from PURE.
Among the hits: The Detroit Tigers (MLB), The Detroit Lions (NFL),
University of Michigan Football (NCAA), Snow Virgins, Monsoon Season,
and a couple of others.
Well worth a look for a laugh, or two. FYI: The "Pure Michigan"
website has promos for Traverse City and Mackinac Island. Both of
these places are in the area where I reside.
