 You think edgy crime thrillers are something new? The great Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray and Edward G. Robinson have been keeping audiences on edge since 1944. That’s when Billy Wilder and co-writer Raymond Chandler taught the world what film noir was all about in their adaptation of James M. Cain’s seedy classic about an insurance man who lets a seductive married woman talk him into murder. It’s being screened large behind the IMA as part of the Summer Nights film series (which continues in a dark vein for the next two weeks with “Batman” and “Pulp Fiction” before lightening up for the season-closing “The Sound of Music.”) Details here

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
