If you can vote tomorrow

Go out and help support the zoo. If I could vote in Michigan I would be there first thing tomorrow morning. The tax is said to average around $10 a household over a year, which isn't much compared to the approx. $60 mil the zoo creates in revenue for the surrounding areas (info gathered from articles below go read for more). I hope you all go vote tomorrow cause along with the zoo there are some really important issues on the ballot.

I don't find it surprising that the proposal passed. I voted for it: it's not just Detroit's zoo, it's all of Metropolitan Detroit's.
