Power lunch

. May 29, 2012.

Whoever said there’s no such thing as a free lunch was, of course, right, but for the past three summers, every Thursday at Ann Arbor’s downtown Liberty Plaza, there has been something that many would say is even better—a free Sonic Lunch.  The very popular lunchtime concerts return this summer, beginning on June 2nd and ending on August 25th. Sponsored by Bank of Ann Arbor, the series features local, national and even internationally recognized bands, and attracts large crowds of downtown workers, teens, and families with young children. Some people even bring lawn chairs. They all munch their lunch while the music plays non-stop from noon to 1:30. Food is available at the Plaza from a different local restaurant vendor each week and, new this year, a variety of coffee vendors will also set up shop and offer their wares. For this summer’s full band lineup, visit www.bankofannarbor.com/soniclunch/

Moore Takes Aim at Both Parties in Fahrenheit 11/9

Flint’s story is essential to the film because it illustrates the power of greed and why corporate money has no place in government. Macroeconomics 101 tells us that corporations are beholden to one thing—their stockholders. Humans do not enter into this equation. How can you have a democracy for the people when corporate money runs the government? You can’t.
