Busy tone when calling cell phone
Todd Spangler Detroit Free Press Published 9:00 AM EDT Sep 26, 2018 WASHINGTON – The most compelling campaign in Michigan this fall may be out at the edge of Detroit's suburbs where a congressman who has represented the area in one way or another for most of the last 20 years faces a newcomer who, after being raised in the state, spent years in the nation’s capital at the Pentagon and at the White House. Theoretically, the race in the 8th Congressional District between U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Rochester, and Elissa Slotkin, his Democratic challenger, of Holly, should see Bishop with the clear advantage: The son of a former state senator, his family is familiar in the area. Bishop, 51, himself served 12 years in the state House, rising to become Senate majority leader. In the U.S. House since 2015, he sits on the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee and has private sector experience in real estate and as a lawyer. President … [Read more...] about Mike Bishop, Elissa Slotkin fight it out in a toss up

Viet Nam News By Tử Dạ Vũ His mother always urged him to get married, but he ignored her. Though he was over 30, his career remained a big fat zero. It was impossible to get married. He was too proud for that. If he got married, he should be able to take care of his wife and kids, not vice versa. He was well-educated, with a degree like anybody else.But it was a degree in education, literary education, which was only good for decoration. After graduation, he was unemployed for several years, surviving on royalties from his fiction and poetry. Luckily, a friend introduced him to write for a few e-magazines, so he could make ends meet. His mother was a peasant at heart: barely literate, prone to nagging, extremely devoted to her child. His father passed away when he was still in the cradle, and his mother had single-handedly raised him. He had never dared argue with her, but hummed and hawed to bide his time, especially with regard to the issue of marriage. His … [Read more...] about There was only a river running
