The Millage of God Grinds Slowly

John Auchter, 5/10/11:
For those of us not living in that bustling center of commerce that is Grand Rapids, Michigan, a "millage" is a dedicated piece of the property tax that goes to a local mass transit system. A popular vote recently increased that tax.

I'm sorry, I'll read that again: a popular vote recently increased that tax, which is not particularly popular with the car-driving suburbanites who voted against the measure.
