Michigan: Hip To Be Cool

Michigan’s governor says she wants to make her state so cool that people will be drawn to it. “The governor said she mailed letters to 200 Michigan mayors encouraging them to organize ‘cool commissions’ to make their cities attractive enough to keep young adults in the state. ‘More than 33,000 young adults ages 25-34 left Metro Detroit between 2000 and 2002, according to a recent U.S. Census Bureau report. It was the biggest loss of that age group in the country, an exodus that could put the area’s long-term economic outlook at risk’.”
