Subject: Child’s letter stirs Obama’s visit to Flint next Wed., May 4th
President Obama is visiting Flint, Michigan next Wednesday, May 4th, The federal government has employed support (financially. etc.) assisting and solving the Flint Water Crises. Of course, Governor Snyder will not be attending and I find it convenient and strange that the governor has never met with President Obama when the president visits Michigan.

Subject: What does Ikiru, Erin Brockovich and A Civil Action have in Common?
I enjoyed all of these superb films; however, if you can only view one; I recommend A Civil Action for the thriller aspect of Jan Schilchtmann’s journey.
