Ha! That's the same thing I thought when I saw that picture. If a dinosaur will fit into it, it's a sinkhole.

It is sad to see the roads falling apart in Michigan, but with a leader in Lansing like Grandholm, we can not expect anything any different. Once she is done destroying our state and moves on, we will be able to rebuild but it is going to cost the taxpayers.

Your right Edward, she gets those redneck democrats in Whitehall to vote for her. It's wonder they even know what a pot hole is. Their afraid to even drive to muskegon.

The difference between a pothole and a sinkhole is which government agency ends up paying to repair it....

Potholes are fixed by township property taxes.
(A simple shovel full of cold patch)

Sinkholes need Federal and State beauracracies....

Expensive studies and engineering... kickbacks from contractors..cost overruns... fancy catered meals and 5 star hotels for politicians and bigwigs from MDOT and the USDOT...

Somebody in Whitehall wants the rest of the nation to pony up millions for a new bridge!(And help the local motels and restruants make a profit at the taxpayers expense)

Let's name it after whichever politician gets an "earmark" to pay for it!

I know many people in whitehall, the only thing they know is each other.
As for being republicans ... they are sheltered.
their paw told them what to do.

Well I think the "five foot void" underneath the "pothole" made it a "sinkhole" since it will open up and get worse.
