Is it impossible these days to have a discussion about an issue or a political race without it becoming personal? Apparently so, at least for one backer of Judge Jane Markey.
Markey is up against Colleen O'Brien for one of three Republican nominations for Michigan Supreme Court justice. As faithful readers of this blog know, your Wizard has published three articles critical of Markey decisions, principally on the grounds that they contradict her claim to be a "rule of law" judge. I have never attacked Judge Markey personally, nor have I attacked her supporters.

I'll be hitting the blog list cull and add session again soon enough, and figured it would be a good time to highlight a couple of our Michigan based blogs.
One that I am glad to see back up and regular is the Hall of Record. A Natural Solution to Our energy Needs today talks about the use of Natural Gas for vehicles. I have commentary, but will share it when there is a field to place it in. (Hint)
The Blog of Bodnar hits the national interest Republican presidential results of Iowa in Iowa Is Over Whats Next? Take a breath. Indeed.
Jack McHugh at CapCon picks up the right to work story recently highlighted by Mitch Daniels of Indiana. Strong Support for Right-to-Work Measures in the Michigan Legislature reminds us that there are folks in Lansing that have been actively pursuing this even over the fear of the nerd and senate majority leader.
Could cities in Michigan be the next to "ban the box"? The Wizard of Laws considers it in America's Newest Protected Class -- Felons! Keep the Crystal Ball warmed up wiz, and maybe some alka seltzer on the side. We'll need it.
Conservative First has been gracious enough to pass a few gems over to this forum in the last year. A few of them you may not have seen, but he highlights the best over at the Western Right.
