I have lived in Michigan for 33 years and am now retired as professor emeritus of biochemistry from Wayne State University School of Medicine. Married for 25 years to a girl from East Detroit who grew up in a big family so I have lots of in-laws around Detroit. My twin sons graduated from college two years ago and are in Chicago and Ann Arbor, and my daughter has one more soccer season at Northern Michigan University, about as remote a place as you can find east of the Mississippi. I still ski and sail — this year will be my 21st Port Huron to Mackinac Island race. Cindy and I finally attended a Michigan football game in Michigan Stadium, and then to Green Bay to meet soccer-parent friends and watch the Lions play the Packers in Lambeau Field. A balmy 21 degrees at game time!
