  • This blog will be great! I love your emails every Thursday.
  • Good luck with your blog
  • love those reviews. especially the fact that you don't sugar coat. that is a good thing for indy. kudos. the blogs are certain not to be just blah blah blah.
  • Lou:
    Well done...
  • Good job! Very proud here from Bloomington!
  • Lou: I won't be able to attend the screening this week, so you can go ahead and release the two tickets. Thanks for the tickets and again, thanks for all you do for the arts and entertainment.
  • I noticed your Tony Kiritsis reference. An early look at a new drama (and, no, don't call shotgun on this one).

    Maybe the slightly nutty Tony just had his own warped way of dealing with the sub-prime mortgage meltdown.

    I love your subtle humor.
  • rss no worky!
  • Lou: Please contact me @ caweidman01@msn.com. I'm the publisher of the new Indy Arts Magazine. I would be interested in chatting with you further. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

    Hey Lou,

    For everyone reading this, I want you to know, I have had the pleasure of being Lous neighbor for over 4yrs. Lou is an all around goodguy! Theres always fun activities going on at his crib, and he's alway down for an opening ticket or two. We appreciate you, and wish you unlimited success!

  • tickets to Valentine's Day
    I see you are sponsoring the movie Valentine's Day. Are you going to be giving out passes?
  • It has been decided
    I actually know who it is, but will only give you a clue!! I overheard a conversation at an event between some people that are involved. She is a big star, female, and a country singer. Very pretty.

    That should narrow it down to about 15 names I would think.
  • Thanks!
    Thanks Mr. Harry for considering our Film Festival for coverage and discussing options for our upcoming events. Your guidance and ideas have been helpful.
  • Join us Thursday, March 17
    Just wanted to extend a personal invitation to join Capital City Chorus in celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Link here to get all the details:

  • email
    What's your e-mail?
    Please take some time to look at my new project. I'm looking for ideas to help expand the exposure of our first feature film.

    Thank you

  • Tickets
    Lou - the Indiana Wind Symphony would like to offer some tickets to our concerts at the Palladium to your readers. What is the best way to do that?
  • Lotus Festival
    I loved the article on 2012 Lotus Festival. Consider a bus trip to the fest for next year, it would be great! You know it would!

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
