So TV's "Dancing with the Stars" has another winner. Hooray. I caught some of the finals last night without having seen the rest of the series. And having been to Dance Kaleidoscope's season ending performance Sunday, I'm curious as to whether the huge...

Comments(13)
Many a back was slapped in Indianapolis and among the Indy troops in Atlanta yesterday when the NFL team owners opted for Indianapolis over Phoenix and Houston to host the 2012 Super Bowl. Elsewhere, though, the reaction was mixed. The Arizona Republic...

Super Bowl site selections can create odd alliances among the 32 wealthy fellows casting the votes. The man who last year single-handedly dismantled Indianapolis’ bid to host the 2011 game came this year to the Circle City’s defense. With Indianapolis embroiled...

Indianapolis, cold in winter?

Does Indianapolis experience winter? NFL owners meeting in Atlanta today could be forgiven for wondering, if all they knew about Indianapolis was the information in the Super Bowl bid package. The 30-plus pages in the executive summary have plenty...

There are still plenty of people in NFL circles who think Indianapolis is no place for a Super Bowl. And yes, some of those are among the 32 team owners and other team executives. Indianapolis remains a favorite today to...

  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
