For me, the weekend included a visit to the Eiteljorg Museum's "Best of the West" show, tweeting absurdities during the Miss America pageant, and reading Stephen Greenblatt's speculative biography "Will in the World" in anticipation of a season that includes lots of Shakespeare plays. I also took time to engage in a spirited discussion with a local actor regarding a recent review

And you? Did you get to any of the Indy Jazz Fest performances around town? Take advantage of the glorious weather and hit the Zoo or Conner Prairie? Sit in on Chicago with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra?

What A&E did you experience over the weekend?

  • Buble Does It Again
    My husband and I saw Michael Buble last night at Banker's Life. His show was bigger and better, yet still felt intimate. And it's always amazing when he finishes with A Song for You off-mic, still filling the house with his sound and his passion. My husband, who wasn't keen on going to start with, is now a big fan. Bonus!
  • Diane Schuur was great
    Diane Schuur's set may have been a tad on the short side because it was a two-show night, but she (and the trio accompanying her) filled every song with tremendous energy and musicality. Few singers can move so effortlessly into their head voice and with great volume, but she did it consistently throughout, showing only slight signs of how aging has impacted her overall range. It was a wonderful night out.

  1. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

  2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

  3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

  4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

  5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
