Michigan Proclaims Magic Day

 

Jennifer Granholm

Governor Jennifer Granholm of Michigan proclaimed May 21st as Magic Day in the Magic Hub of the Universe. (We added the “Magic Hub of the Universe” part).

The most attractive and best educated governor in the United States announced her proclamation on April 10th to the excited adulation of the state’s magicians. Her Honor is required by tradition and law to give the basis for the proclamation. She supported her executive order by noting the significance of magic in America’s performing arts tradition.

The Governor proclaimed the benefits of magic are enjoyed by the theater-going public as well as magicians. Magic, Ms. Granholm said, “affirms the noblest aspirations of our national character, individual discipline, perseverance, and innovation.”

We agree. We also note two coincidences: 1) May 21st, Magic Day in the Magic Hub of the Universe, is also Michigan Magic Day in Flint, Michigan; and 2) Ms. Granholm also proclaimed May 15th, 2003 Irvin “Magic” Johnson Day.

For Ms. Granholm, May means Magic.

Her proclamation follows:

Whereas, Arts education and the appreciation for the contributions of all American art forms is fundamental to the people of the State of Michigan; and,

Whereas, Magic is an original American art form that affirms the noblest aspirations of our national character, individual discipline, perseverance, and innovation; and

Whereas, Michigan magic heritage deserves to be appreciated and shared by its residents; and,

Whereas, I honor and recognize the outstanding work that all magicians and enthusiasts in the State of Michigan represent; and now therefore be it,

Resolved, That I, Jennifer M. Granholm, Governor of the State of Michigan, do hereby proclaim May 21, 2005, as Magic Day in Michigan.
