Math illiteracy rampantRestricted Content

October 27, 2012
Please don’t blame the state’s emphasis on tests for the lack of life skills in mathematics [Meredith column, Oct. 1].

Drop RusthovenRestricted Content

October 27, 2012
Peter Rusthoven’s columns are horrible. There is no business information in them, just conservative Republican dribble.

Hetrick spins, tooRestricted Content

October 27, 2012
Bruce Hetrick’s Oct. 22 column “Spouting off about the all-too-common art of spin” begins by offering the reader his view on how characters in the Broadway play “The Book of Mormon” are adept at spinning falsehoods in the guise of “helping people.” Hetrick provides spinning of his own, personally reviewing the highly irreverent play as hilarious, pant-wetting entertainment.

How's Obama workin' for ya?Restricted Content

October 27, 2012
I have avoided writing about any of left-wing author Sheila Kennedy’s opinion pieces because she’s such an easy target. However her [Oct. 22] “Elections have consequence” piece calling Republicans extremist demands a response.

Vote to restore balanceRestricted Content

October 27, 2012
Three things have modulated the excesses of unfettered American capitalism since the rise of the Progressive Era in the early 20th century: labor unions, government regulations, and the progressive income tax system. It’s no coincidence that the rise of the American middle class followed.

GM, Chrysler didn't need rescueRestricted Content

October 27, 2012
The automobile industry did not need rescue. It did not need the government takeover. Only two badly run corporations were in trouble.

Sports, arts not rivalsRestricted Content

October 20, 2012
Bill Benner’s [Oct. 15] column on arts versus sports drives home the point of the misguided view that the arts and sports are equal rivals! This column should have appeared on your front page!

Why help Democrats?Restricted Content

October 20, 2012
I must respectfully disagree with Mickey Maurer’s Oct. 15 commentary.
More

Might leave the stateRestricted Content

October 20, 2012
[Hetrick’s Oct. 8 column] was spot on. I tend Democrat but have been voting for Richard Lugar since I could vote in 1972.
More

Disheartening responseRestricted Content

October 20, 2012
Thank you for the [Oct. 8 Morris column] on the Senate race. Some important issues seem to be swept under the rug in this important race.

Obesity battle can be wonRestricted Content

October 20, 2012
The shocking news about obesity keeps on coming. As IBJ reported in its Oct. 8 editorial, “Residents’ health a weighty issue,” more than half of Hoosiers will be obese by 2030, costing us billions of dollars in health care and lost productivity.

Student critiques have limited value to teachersRestricted Content

October 13, 2012
I see some real drawbacks to having students evaluate their teachers.

Article overlooked part-time MBAs

October 6, 2012
A [Sept. 10] article cited evidence of a drop in MBA applications as part of a nationwide trend among prominent business schools. While the article specifically names decreases in applications to highly regarded MBA programs at Indiana University and Purdue University, it overlooks the significant growth within part-time MBA programs like the one offered here at the IU Kelley School of Business in downtown Indianapolis.

Vote for change

October 6, 2012
The recession was not caused by George W. Bush. It was caused by liberal sub-prime mortgage practices at financial institutions, backed by government-sponsored Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac since 1993. The independent Federal Reserve System saved the banks, but in addition to foreclosures, millions of home values are now worth less than the mortgages owed.
More

Consumption tax would spark growthRestricted Content

October 6, 2012
Elections are close by and the rhetoric from all sides is heating up. Tax the rich! 47 percent of Americans do not pay income taxes!
More

More credits for Denison growthRestricted Content

September 29, 2012
We want to thank IBJ for the [Sept. 24] profile of Denison Parking. While Denison’s partnership with the citizens of Indianapolis was highlighted in the article, our partnership with Hal Darring and Global Parking was left unpublished.
More

Pancake too thinRestricted Content

September 29, 2012
I know Rex Early is a loyal Republican but I was surprised of his [Sept. 1 column] support for Mourdock. While he may tell it as he sees it, he fails to understand it is a mighty thin pancake that does not have two sides.
More

Brainard good for CarmelRestricted Content

September 22, 2012
Who are you [Sept. 17 Styring column] to pretend to know what Carmel residents want?
More

Brainard, 'cronies' should leaveRestricted Content

September 22, 2012
While I agreed with almost every point [Styring, Sept. 17] made, there is one that I must vehemently object to—specifically his statement that “I don’t question the mayor’s honesty or good intentions.”
More

Governed by profligatesRestricted Content

September 22, 2012
Plato said, “The penalty good men pay for inattention to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.” In Carmel, [Sept. 17 Styring column] we have chosen commerce over the constitution, the rule of man over the rule of law.
More

Getting out the voteRestricted Content

September 22, 2012
In his [Aug. 27] column, Bruce Hetrick challenged us—the opinion leaders of the Indianapolis community—to do more to encourage voter participation, and he has good reason to be concerned. According to the Indiana Civic Health Index, the Hoosier State ranks 48th in voter turnout and 43rd in voter registration. Some might be disappointed in our ranking, but I see this as a call to action.

Appreciating White RiverRestricted Content

September 22, 2012
Both in business and at home, water is so much a part of our daily lives that we often take it for granted.
More

Teacher preparation already changingRestricted Content

September 15, 2012
At the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, we agree with David Harris [Sept. 3 Forefront] that Gov. Mitch Daniels is in an exciting position to reform teacher preparation at Purdue. Some steps have already been taken there, with the governor’s endorsement.
More

More ways to fix abandoned homesRestricted Content

September 15, 2012
I finished reading the [Sept. 3 Forefront column] from Samuel Odle and couldn’t agree more that the abandoned homes issue poses many challenges for the neighborhoods, residents and overall Indianapolis community. However, I felt compelled to offer a fourth solution.
More

Different conclusionRestricted Content

September 8, 2012
Studying the same subject, I came to a different conclusion, especially when the whole story is revealed [Kennedy column, Aug. 27].

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
