Post subject: Ultimate Solution To Consolidation
Reply with quote

I see the debate rages on this morning even while I type. I wasn't going to say anything more but I do not want to disappoint my new best friend Kathe who keeps tricking me into this debate. But, enough about me.
I spent last night tipping with my best friend Sailor Jerry. Half way through our indulgences we came up with the ultimate solution to consolidation. Beaver Island secede from the United States and apply for statehood as the 51st state, Michiconsin. Appointment two mythical characters as Governor and Lieutenant Governor, call them say: Bill and Ed, strictly fictitious. We would not be a red state, blue state or purple state but instead be a lavender state for healing purposes. As a political party we would become Republicrats.
Think of what we could accomplish if we united our energies on issues, our results could know no bounds with our differences and problems being nonexistent.
I now end to nurse the worst hangover I've ever had.

How sweet it is! When I look at Kathe's emoticons above, I see three little buddies licking peppermint sticks and enjoying it. Michifish, where all the Michifishies are strong, good looking and above average. Kathe, great response to my post. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
aka/Don - See, I'm no longer a coward without a name. Cool

If the consolidation vote passes I suggest the name Archipelago Township. I wouldn't want the inhabitant of Whiskey Island feeling left out

It would more accurately describe the geographic entity. There is a house on Trout and Squaw Island light house recently sold.

Pirate has many insightful observations. I suggest we appoint him King of Beaver Island Archipelago. We had James Strang in 1850's. Pirate would do a good job and end any strife. Plus, pirating may be our economic niche. There must be a lot of boats to plunder.
