A Mid-Michigan state senator wore an eye patch to address his colleagues while celebrating the passage of "Talk like a Pirate Day." Really?Mid-Michigan Senator Roger Kahn pushed it through. Kahn says it celebrates Michigan's maritime heritage.  Democratic senator Gretchen Widmer, however, wasn't amused with the new state holiday. "I just want to thank the senator from the 32nd District for making the most compelling argument that he could for a part time legislature," said Widmer.

Kahn is currently serving his last term as a state senator. He's from Saginaw Township. What are your thoughts? Amused,happy or angry?
