    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    From December 2012:

    http://www.michbar.org/file/opinions...1312/53495.pdf

    Defendant appeals his jury trial conviction of second-degree murder, MCL 750.317. The trial court sentenced defendant as a fourth habitual offender, MCL 769.12, to 270 to 500 months in prison...

    Evidence established that defendant killed Craig and that he did so with malice. Craig’s body showed signs of blunt force trauma to the head. On the night of the murder, after defendant saw that Craig was unresponsive and had no heartbeat, he did not call for help to save her, but went to Home Depot to buy bags and tape to wrap Craig’s body. Defendant wrapped Craig in 17 layers of plastic to conceal the smell of decomposition... Harris testified that defendant said he and Craig had a fight, defendant hit Craig, and that Craig fell and died after the fight.
