Fix what's broken first

December 12, 2009
As a physician, I owe it to my patients to help get health care reform right. From the front line, physicians can offer changes that could result in more cost-effective, efficient and accessible health care. That’s why I joined the Coalition to Protect Patients’ Rights, along with 10,000 other doctors.

Column overlooked airport parking option

December 12, 2009
In your Nov. 2 edition, Tom Henderson weighed in on the new Indy Airport experience. One of his complaints about the new midfield terminal was that, without competition, available parking options have you where they want you. He realized, why complain when it is a fait accompli? There is, however, another option.

Property taxes are out of whack

December 12, 2009
I have always found Morton Marcus’ columns both entertaining and informative. I read the Dec. 7 column, in which Marcus seems to insinuate that property taxes were acceptable as they were and do not require modifications. As a resident of Marion County, I could not disagree more.

Literacy is a lifelong gift

December 5, 2009
It was with great interest that I read Morton Marcus’ [Nov. 30] column encouraging us to spend responsibly this holiday season, and to “give a check to your local adult literacy program.” It was with added delight when I read Theresa Rhodes’ column on the same page suggesting that readers consider volunteering by “helping an adult learn to read.

Meeting Palin was honor

November 28, 2009

You can have fun in smoke-filled bar

November 21, 2009

Courtrooms indeed inspire awe

November 21, 2009
I enjoyed [Mickey Maurer’s Nov. 17] column. As an undergraduate student at IUPUI, working full-time and going to school full-time, I visited the moot court room at the old law school building on New York Street from time to time for inspiration and to remind myself of the goal.

It's time to step up

November 21, 2009
Tough times are real and challenging to navigate. But, if we are honest, we have to admit that those of us fortunate to have jobs have an advantage in tough times.

November 21, 2009

Column on airport got it wrong

November 14, 2009
In its Nov. 2 issue, IBJ published a Bloomington reader’s Viewpoint regarding the new terminal at Indianapolis International Airport. It was both uninformed and misleading.

Health care reform should slow down

November 7, 2009
I am writing because I have closely followed the debate on health care reform and am questioning some of the decisions being made by our legislators in Congress.

Have you hired a veteran today?

November 7, 2009
With Veterans Day upon us, we are reminded to thank a veteran for his or her service and to honor the memories of those who fought for our country and did not come home. But in the business community, we can do more than that, all year long, by bringing veterans into our organizations.

Sallie Mae jobs are in jeopardy

November 7, 2009
There are 2,300 hard-working and well-paid professionals here in Indiana whose jobs are hanging in the balance while Congress debates a bill (H.R. 3221) that would eliminate the private student loan industry as we know it.

Let's add math to driver's test

October 31, 2009

Abandoned houses should be torn down

October 24, 2009
[In response to the Oct. 19 viewpoint] Some of [Kurt] Wiegand’s points were spot-on, but his analysis of the economic impact regarding Mayor Ballard’s plan to demolish abandoned homes misses the mark by a wide margin.
More

Legislator promotes fair redistricting

October 10, 2009
Sometimes I agree with Morton Marcus’ opinions and sometimes I don’t, but I was incredulous when I read his “Let’s help keep legislators in check” in the [Sept. 28] IBJ.

Chicago Olympics? What a joke

October 10, 2009
I can appreciate, but heartily disagree, with the arguments [Bill Benner] advanced [in his Oct. 5 column] that Chicago getting the 2012 Olympics would have benefited Indianapolis.

This is time to step up at work, not back off

October 10, 2009
I read the [Sept. 21 viewpoint] “Learn to say no at work” with disbelief that this is among the best advice that can be given, when companies are now being required to do more with less.

Forget visiting the Berry Bowl

October 10, 2009
[In response to Bill Benner’s Oct. 5 column] You can cross off your list watching basketball at the Berry Bowl. A new school was built in Logansport in the early ’70s and the old school, including the wonderful Berry Bowl, was torn down.

  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
