No wonder the roads are all messed up

When we were at Creating Keepsakes University, we were appalled by the state of the roads in Dearborn, MI. If you are at all familiar with the road system in Detroit, you understand what I mean.

When we first arrived on that Wednesday night, we did one of those European Vacation things ... driving around in a large circle around the hotel. Look kids, Big Ben... Parliament. Look kids, its the Hyatt .... now HOW do we get over there?

And the Michigan left hander. Whatever. Seriously. Now I see why Michigan drivers have such a bad reputation as being extremely fast drivers when they get into Ohio. You know why? Because ... the roads make sense.

So this morning, my local AM station played a blurb of a 911 call from a Dearborn police officer. Heard about this?

Apparently, the Dearborn police department let this officer resign without being charged of a drug crime when he called 911 and told the operator this:

"I think we're dying," he said in the 5-minute tape, obtained under the Michigan Freedom of Information Act. "We made brownies and I think we're dead, I really do," Sanchez continued. He told the dispatcher he had never made marijuana brownies before, but had previously used marijuana.

I think I can understand the road systems better now...

Hey now! I remember very vividly driving through Ohio and when the sign showed your exit, if you weren't already in that lane you were screwed. There was no such thing as exit such-and-such 2 miles...nope. Exit HERE is all Ohio gives ya.

Then again, maybe it has changed, I haven't been to Ohio since choice. ;)

But Detroit, yeah, that is so not a model city for roads. Why do you think I live in Michigan but 8 hours drive from Detroit. LOL!
