Michigan legislators debased themselves to humor Trump — and his campaign is still harassing them anyway

awesome article!
Readers... a few days ago, an article appeared about tips and harrassment in the hospitality business. Please Google "Colors NYC." It was a restaurant that failed, due to business practices that the "Restaurant Opportunities Center" (ROC) now think that the rest of us should adhere to. Then, Google restaurateur "Danny Meyer." His no-tipping policy was reversed, once he discovered that it was bad for business. DMT - You should provide equal coverage, for actual workers/owners to provide their counterpoint.

Thank you Metro Times for the article on MOCAD and the NRO - THIS LAND IS THEIR LAND. I know 'Merica is #notready for the Native Reconciliation Movement, but to quote my favorite radical band: "It has to start somewhere. It has to start sometime. What better place than here? What better time than now?"
