Lincoln’s RepublicansRestricted Content

September 14, 2013
If Abe Lincoln were asked about the proposed legislation to amend Indiana’s Constitution to ban gay marriage [Maurer, Sept. 2], he would respond as he has in the past: “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”

Wanting full marriageRestricted Content

September 14, 2013
I love Indianapolis. It is our home and I would love to marry my partner, but we will never settle for a watered-down version of marriage.

Maurer got it rightRestricted Content

September 14, 2013
You got it, brother, [Maurer, Sept. 2] except we need to mount up our pickups and ATVs, load up our Glocks, .45s and AK-47s and lay waste to those idiots who want to marry whomever they please.

Purdue fortunate to have Daniels as presidentRestricted Content

September 14, 2013
Your [Sept. 2] cover story on Purdue President Mitch Daniels referenced “skepticism” from certain camps within the Purdue faculty. In the article, professor David Sanders was quoted as a basis for that skepticism.

Running for office again?

September 14, 2013
J.K. Wall’s [Sept. 2] article points out that Mitch Daniels is trying to “create new ways to measure student learning, graduate success and overall academic quality at Purdue” and that “Such a system of measurements would help students, parents and donors choose schools based on the best bang for the buck … ”

More

GOP needs updatingRestricted Content

August 31, 2013
I agree with Sheila Kennedy [Aug. 26] that the GOP of a generation ago that she and I worked for and supported has left.
More

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.
More

Lessons lost on KennedyRestricted Content

August 24, 2013
Sheila Kennedy’s [Aug. 12] column “Detroit reflects our moral bankruptcy” leads us down the same path she always goes.
More

Heated words don't helpRestricted Content

August 24, 2013
In response to Sheila Suess Kennedy’s op-ed “Detroit reflects our moral bankruptcy,” I can’t say I’m shocked by her predictable position supporting liberal policy to cure all ills.
More

Ban Kennedy columnsRestricted Content

August 24, 2013
Thank you for allowing Peter Rusthoven [Aug. 19] to respond to Sheila Kennedy’s outlandish column on the Detroit bankruptcy.
More

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.
More

Tourism cuts add upRestricted Content

August 17, 2013
Anthony Schoettle’s [July 29] article “Indiana tourism spending is fraction of nearby states’” shed light on an issue those of us in the tourism industry have been concerned with since the budget decreases began a few years ago.

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.
More

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.
More

Coal decision will rock Indiana energy pricesRestricted Content

July 20, 2013
The recent announcement of the president’s climate-change plan is a revealing look into the future of our nation and the crippling effect it will have on Indiana.

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.

  1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
