Michigan sure does not make anything from the movies!!
And another thing!... why are so enamored by the movie industry? Instead of concentrating on getting real jobs for real people in our state, the people in charge are spinning their wheels sucking up to an industry that could care less about us! One of the recent political ads mentioned that Clint Eastwood was paid $800,000 dollars to do a recent movie here. While this may be great for places where these actors live and spend money, it does not do a whole lot for Michigan! When you consider the big tax break we are giving up for the dubious privilege of making a few movies, Michigan comes out on the short end of the stick!!! It seems to me that keeping companies in Michigan that employed people living here and spending here would be a much better choice!!
