    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    Just something to mull over in the days leading up to the upcoming approval of Medicaid Expansion in the Michigan Senate later this month.

    With the guv being the stalwart number cruncher he is, what better way is there to help contain patient costs after the federal government begins to scale back its "contribution", then by containing the number of patients your new entitlement will cover?

    Think Sections 3403 and 10320 in the PPACA.

    Of course, it does play hell with the voting rolls. But they have already lived a long and good life anyway.

    Gotta look at the larger picture and keep those overall costs down!

    Most of you have probably aware of this term.

    You most likely associate it with the military making equipment and personnel less visible to detection methods.

    But did you know that this is also a tactic used in the business world?

    And if you haven't caught it already, our governor is a business guy and likes to adopt business methodology wherever he can to accomplish his agenda. Especially when he feels that his agenda won't go over very well with the people he purportedly serves.

    So what is he up to now?

    Cancel the EM.

    Things are shaping up nicely.

    I imagine that fiscal wreck that is Detroit's finances will right themselves in no time.

    Detroit, Michigan.

    About one month ago.

    Governor Snyder refuses to release several million dollars in bond money to keep the City of Detroit running until it can show quantifiable financial benchmarks to demonstrate that it is on-track towards fiscal responsibility.

    The whole "rearranging-the-deckchairs-on-the-Titanic" argument notwithstanding, on the surface it is the most prudent thing to do.

    Don't give irresponsible people any more money to waste until they show a little responsibility with what they already have.

    If only that management principle remained constant.

    Tick-tock. Tick-tock. Tick-tock.

    The latest deadline for a decision under P.A. 4 on Detroit is looming fast (and our relentlessly positive governor really, really, really, really with a spoonful of sugar means it this time).

    This situation has become very fluid over the past several days.

    Don't have a scorecard?

    Here's a quick round-up.
