When Michigan "shuts down" on Monday, it will give all of us an opportunity to find out how many things can be done on the Internet.
Did you know that most Secretary of State functions and DNR licenses can be obtained in the comfort of your home, on your computer?
Before running out on Friday to purchase a new tag for your plate, or a small game license, go to the following addresses, and see if what you need is available:
Secretary of State: http://www.michigan.gov/sos/0,1607,7-127-1627---,00.html
Department of Natural Resources: http://www.mdnr-elicense.com/welcome.asp
Master these web sites and you will be saying, "Shutdown? What shutdown?"
