I'm a big fan of the Slate weekly news quiz, and I would enjoy seeing a Michigan version here each Friday. (I'll have to study up to do better than 71% next time)

It is very important to get your news from all sources, those whose thinking is like yours, and those who have an opposing viewpoint.

Fun. But it reminded me of how difficult it is to find sources of state news. Keep up the good work.

The questions were too easy and alternative choices silly.
