Facing Fear

MSU News - November 5, 2014 - 2:11pm
Just the other night I curled up on the couch with my daughter (who is an adult) and a bowl of popcorn to watch our favorite show, "The Walking Dead." I realized that also within that week we had watched some of our other favorites-"American Horror Story," "Sleepy Hollow" and "Gotham." We also love "Bates Motel" but that season hasn't started yet. Not to mention, we had gone all out for Halloween with decorations and intricately carved scary pumpkins. I swear I am not a dark and twisted person and neither is she. Really. We're actually pretty upbeat and sunny on most days. So, why all the interest in zombies, horrifying clowns, ghosts, headless horsemen and evil characters? As someone in my office recently asked me, "Why in the world would I want to watch something that scares me?"

DETROIT — The party was over before it even began at the MGM Grand Detroit Casino Tuesday, where Democratic candidate for Governor and MSU alumnus Mark Schauer was announced the loser of the election by major news outlets well before he took the stage.

After a race that was deemed too close to call in days prior, Democratic candidate for Governor and MSU alumnus Mark Schauer lost to incumbent Governor Rick Snyder and gave a somber speech following the loss.

Similarly, Mark Totten, a MSU law professor who ran in the democrat slot for Attorney General, was outvoted by current Attorney General Bill Schuette.

Regardless of not receiving as much attention from national and local media as his teammates, Rush has built a resume at MSU that some would consider untouchable.
