This one wasn’t even close. Of the 227 people who took this week’s Heller Poll on which Great Lake is the greatest of them all, 59 percent said Lake Michigan. In second place was Lake Superior with 30 percent, while Lake Huron finished a dismal third with 15 percent. (I realize that adds up to 104 percent, but that’s what the silly poll program said, so clearly it has my math skills.)
Lakes Erie and Ontario received no votes, not that any were expected because, c’mon, they’re Lakes Erie and Ontario, the red-headed step-children of the Great Lakes. (Apologies to any red-headed step-children out there.)
Enjoy the rest of summer, folks.
