GOP needs updatingRestricted Content

I agree with Sheila Kennedy [Aug. 26] that the GOP of a generation ago that she and I worked for and supported has left.

Democrats wrong party for adult leadershipRestricted Content

August 31, 2013
If Sheila Kennedy [Aug. 26] has left the Republican Party and become a Democrat in hopes of finding a party of grown-ups, she can’t be thinking of the same Democrats who seem to follow the rules of Saul Alinsky, who advises in “Rules for Radicals” to make the other party the worst kind of evil while Democrats need not stick to the truth to accomplish the end.

Leaders badly neededRestricted Content

August 17, 2013
I wholeheartedly agree with P.E. MacAllister’s Aug. 5 Forefront column “Bring back the CCC for troubled youth.” Dope, gangs, crime. A disappointing educational system. Our staggering economic base supplanted with food stamps and unemployment compensation. Declining church influences. Sagging morality. He mentions it all.

Tourism cuts add upRestricted Content

Cops before cricketRestricted Content

August 10, 2013
Cricket fields, a league, tournament play and the economic benefits they might bring to Marion County could have all been enjoyed without spending $6 million from the city’s budget [DeGaris column, July 29]. In fact, not one tax dollar needed to have been spent.

Zinn opens our eyes to another American point of viewRestricted Content

July 27, 2013
Of course Rusthoven would write this biased piece [July 22]. He’s speaking on behalf of the GOP. How can Howard Zinn’s book be anti-American? If anything, it is American.

Waltz changed emphasis of transit debateRestricted Content

July 13, 2013
Like Sen. Waltz, I will be serving on the legislative study committee dealing with the future of public transit for central Indiana. The committee has yet to meet and the senator had not shared his ideas with me, so I was interested in his thoughts [July 8]. He seems to have redefined our task.

June 15, 2013
I’m amazed at how many don’t understand the difference between civil marriage—the one that government sanctions—and religious marriage, the one ordained by religious institutions [Maurer Commentary, May 27].

  1. So much for Eric Holder's conversation about race. If white people have got something to say, they get sued over it. Bottom line: white people have un-freer speech than others as a consequence of the misnamed "Civil rights laws."

  2. I agree, having seen three shows, that I was less than wowed. Disappointing!!

  3. Start drilling, start fracking, and start using our own energy. Other states have enriched their citizens and nearly elminated unemployment by using these resources that are on private land. If you are against the 'low prices' of discount stores, the best way to allow shoppers more choice is to empower them with better earnings. NOT through manipulated gov mandated min wage hikes, but better jobs and higher competitive pay. This would be direct result of using our own energy resources, yet Obama knows that Americans who arent dependent of gov welfare are much less likely to vote Dem, so he looks for ways to ensure America's decline and keep its citizens dependent of gov.

  4. Say It Loud, I'm Black and Ashamed: It's too bad that with certain "black" entertainment events, it seems violence and thuggery follows and the collateral damage that it leaves behinds continues to be a strain on the city in terms of people getting hurt, killed or becoming victims of crimes and/or stretching city resources. I remember shopping in the Meadows area years ago until violence and crime ended make most of the business pack you and leave as did with Lafayette Square and Washington Square. Over the past 10 to 12 years, I remember going to the Indiana Black Expo Soul Picnic in Washington Park. Violence, gang fights and homicides ended that. My great grandmother still bears the scares on her leg from when she was trampled by a group of thugs running from gun fire from a rival gang. With hundreds of police offices downtown still multiple shootings, people getting shot downtown during Black Expo. A number of people getting shots or murdered at black clubs around the city like Club Six on the west side, The Industry downtown, Jamal Tinsley's shot out in front of the Conrad, multiple fights and shootings at the skating rinks, shootings at Circle Center Mall and shooting and robberies and car jackings at Lafayette Mall. Shootings and gang violence and the State Fair. I can go on and on and on. Now Broad Ripple. (Shaking head side to side) Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Ashamed.

  5. Ballard Administration. Too funny. This is the least fiscally responsive administration I have ever seen. One thing this article failed to mention, is that the Hoosier State line delivers rail cars to the Amtrak Beech Grove maintenance facility for refurbishment. That's an economic development issue. And the jobs there are high-paying. That alone is worth the City's investment.
