What? You mean there is art in Wastenaw County? In Michigan? Now why didn't anyone tell the Ann Arbor city council before their art funds spent $750,000 for a city hall installation designed in Germany that many find objectionable beyond the obscene price tag? Remember and vote out the incumbents in November!!!
