SWEETWATERS COFFEE SHOP THING, ANN ARBOR, MI -Indiana license plates have American flags and "In God We Trust."

You can't miss it.
I always miss it.
Some Indianans most likely believe that their license plats and the war memorials and church on Sunday and Jesus are somehow connected. Just like some folks believe we landed on the moon and Osama bin Laden made money on put options prior to 9-11, like the guy in Spencer's who gave me directions back to my hotel.
After leaving Spencer's and heading straight on McCarty I stopped at a red light and could see the construction zone for the new stadium for the Indianapolis Colts. There were lights all over and cranes and partial walls. It looked like a set from Waterworld.
Well, I have been to Indianapolis and Saginaw, now waiting to go over to The Planet bookstore on North Main Street in Ann Arbor, then it's over to Detroit [Oakland County] for another round of Drinking Liberally.
Ruth called me just as I arrived in Indianapolis, worried after hearing about an accident near South Bend that killed eight people.
