I would like to express my gratitude to Mackinac Center summer intern James Vote, who pored through the hundreds of entries on LM-2 reports — a difficult chore but essential to the project. On this and other projects Vote proved to be a valuable member of the Mackinac Center team. I would also like to thank my peer reviewers: Diana Furchtgott-Roth of the Hudson Institute, Prof. Leo Troy of Rutgers University and Mike Reitz of the Evergreen Freedom Foundation, for their valuable feedback that served to make this a better, clearer paper.
