Who’s the Cynic?
Born and raised in west Michigan, I now live in the Detroit area and work in Lansing. I’m a Grand Valley State graduate with a BS in criminal justice. Yes, I have been outside of Michigan—I went to Villanova University for a year and lived in central Illinois for a couple of years.
After about 20 years of marriage, I got divorced. My ex died from lung cancer a couple years ago. I have two kids, a boy and a girl. One’s moved out and one still lives at home.
I don’t know if any of this makes me an expert or not. But it does represent a variety of experiences which should give me some basis for my comments.
