Just when I thought it was safe to read about Michigan human capital problems, up pops this article:

A survey of more than 5,000 recent graduates of Michigan's public universities between October 2007 and March 2008 found that nearly half had left the state, said Louis Glazer, president of Michigan Future Inc., a policy research firm. "That's a horrific number," he said.

Horrific relative to what? 45%? 40%? Mr. Glazer should check out the brain drain crisis in South Carolina, Georgia, or Colorado. The real terror is justifying tax dollars for public universities when so many graduates leave the state.

I was going to post that Michigan should hire the unemployed Border Guard Bob, but I recently found out that he is currently negotiating a new contract with the City of Pittsburgh.
