Our "Day in History" contributors have been providing a crash course about Michigan's past. Every day we're learning more of how the Great Lakes State became what it is today - as well as enlightenment on the heritage of the entire region. Today's Pasty Cameo is a follow-up to the one about Father Marqette that appeared on May 18.

There's so much history in this week's Cameo, you may have to see it twice. What a challenging new world these early explorers faced!

Have a good week :o)

Wow, early?? People aren't up and at 'em?

Starting off this month with a special memorial to all the dogs, cats, horses, and other animals that have suffered and even died because of neglect, abuse and/or torture, dogs and puppies that have and are suffering in puppy mills, and other human uses of animals for profit or entertainment resulting in animal sufferage. Special mention of our Texas pitbull dog, Mercy, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Sunday, April 23, 2006 after suffering horrible abuse from her own owner. Sweet Mercy, you did not die in vain.

Hey: What's with that extra island between the Keweenaw and Isle Royale in the top map?

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Sunday, June 1, 2008 - 07:39 pm:

Maybe that other island is Atlantis?????

Seriously though; a possible explanation is that the middle island could be Isle Royale, with the island marked "Isle Royale" being Isle St. Ignace, which is located much further north towards Nipigon. That would be the only explanation I could come up with.....
