    Today, with the suggestion by R. Jenkins, I purchased my first copy of The Michigan Chronicle. I was not disappointed and look forward to next Wednesday's edition.

    Since introducing me to The Michigan Chronice, I have been a regular reader of this paper. The only problem that I'm having is that a lot of store don't carry this paper. I think that I'm going to have to subscribe. I wonder why more store and gas stations don't carry this local interest newspaper?
