I was on the road yesterday, so Michigan Monday was a bit of a deviation from the norm. It probably covered the most important (and disheartening) news from the weekend though – U of M getting completely owned by MSU.
Coats and Brooks honor heroes
Senator Dan Coats (r-IN) and Representative Susan Brooks (R-N 5) announced their intention to author legislation that would allow the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to remove veterans from national cemeteries if they committed capital crimes. This comes in the wake of an Indianapolis woman (Alicia Dawn Koehl) was murdered by a veteran (Michael LeShawn Anderson). After murdering Koehl, Anderson committed suicide and was buried – with full honors – in Fort Custer National Cemetery near Kalamazoo, Michigan.
