Put That Bottle Of Malt Liquor Down, cause the bank is still closed.
Apparently bridge card holders with accounts ending in a "0" have been 'inconvenienced'. The money didn't appear as it was supposed to:
"It has come to the attention of the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB) that as of 8 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 3, the Bridge Cards providing food assistance for clients with account numbers ending in "0" were not filled as expected.Oh heck no! Its a three day weekend, (including the championship game day) and by golly not having the goods to sit in front of the 55" big screen TV is not acceptable AT ALL. NOT. AT. ALL.
DTMB regrets that this problem has occurred and will be working to ensure that safeguards are put in place to prevent a similar error in the future.See that it doesn't happen again .... fools!

Ya, the overzealous goober is a bit much, but either we are Rule of Law, or to hell with it all.
It's comical to me that the comments in the local Pravda are of more value that what's written by the salaried fish wrap scribes itself. From Billdo53.
I now like the ban.. it's saved me hundreds of dollars... I just don't go to bars anymore... fixed up my "Man Cave" and have 2, 3, or 4 people over several days a week to watch the Tigers, NBA Playoffs, Stanley Cup Finals, and Golf... not all of us smoke, but we all enjoy the .75 per bottle of Labatt Blue... can also burn a fatty while we're at it... I figure in the last year, I have saved about $2,500 from not going to the bar and having some beers and playing Keno...
Welcome aboard, my brother. I've been saying the same thing for almost a year now.
