A Successful Supreme Summer Sizzle!

Elizabeth Welch and Chief Justice McCormack enjoyed the opportunity to speak to Northern Michigan voters about the importance of the Michigan Supreme Court at the Supreme Summer Sizzle in late June!

The event was held virtually on June 26th and was hosted by the Benzie, Manistee, Mason, Leelanau, Grand Traverse, Presque Isle, Alpena, Antrim, Charlevoix, and Emmet Country Democratic Parties.

Supreme Summer Sizzle

The event was made even more special with a live performance by Tim Burke & Barbie Stow, who wrote a song for the occasion, “Our Court is Empty Without You Two”, a parody based on “My World Is Empty Without You” by The Supremes with the following lyrics:

Our Court Is Empty Without You two.
Our Court Is Empty Without You two.
So much testosterone the Truth is gone,
We find it oh so hard to carry on.
We need your common sense, We need your woman’s touch
We need the wisdom that we miss so much.

Our Court Is Empty Without You two.
Our Court Is Empty Without You two..
The courtroom should remain a sacred space,
Your sense of righteousness we can’t replace.
Don’t let the chambers become an empty shell,
We need some Justices that serve us well

(Instrumental break)

We need your guidance like never before.
We know we just can’t hang on much more.

Our Court Is Empty Without You two.

Our Court Is Empty Without You two.
Our minds and souls are all so sick of this,
Respect for others almost doesn’t exist.
And every time a bad decision falls,
It leaves a stain upon the chamber walls.

Our Court Is Empty Without You two.
Our Court Is Empty Without You two.
Without You two.
Without You two.

And every time a bad decision falls,
It leaves a stain upon the chamber walls.

Our Court Is Empty Without You two.
(Without You two.)
Our Court Is Empty Without You two.
(Without You two.)
Our Court Is Empty Without You two.
(Without You two.)
Our Court Is Empty Without You two…….

A huge thank you to our hosts for a great event!  Be sure to keep your eyes out for more fun events in the future!
