Truth hasn't changedRestricted Content

March 9, 2013
Peter Rusthoven’s [Feb. 18 ] column “‘Relevance’ is irrelevant” could not have been more on point. The world view, as seen through liberal media, is that not just the Roman Catholic Church but Christianity in general needs to “become more relevant to an increasingly secular world.

Sequestration piece spot-onRestricted Content

March 9, 2013
While I don’t always agree with [Greg Morris], he was spot on with this [Feb. 25] column. Excellent job on this huge issue for the future of our America. ____________ Albert Wurster Noblesville

Take the federal moneyRestricted Content

March 9, 2013
There are good reasons to feel optimistic about the changes taking place as a result of health care reform. More people will have access to insurance through health insurance marketplaces, and many will be able to take advantage of tax credits to afford this new coverage.

Don't subsidize Indianapolis Motor SpeedwayRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
I seriously question the advisability of our state, city or county providing monetary support to sports organizations, and certainly Indianapolis Motor Speedway [Feb. 18].

Hempstead needs a gripRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
I surely hope Sarah Hempstead [Feb. 25] was joking when she suggested we ask anybody about Indianapolis—inferring, I would guess, a blank stare.

Put citizens firstRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
Are there not any really decent people to run for Congress [Maurer column, Feb. 18]? Too many of these candidates have the ability to speak smoothly, show an engaging personality and make a good impression. The real essence of their character is not revealed until they are caught taking advantage of their slick-lip shenanigans.

Morris column hit homeRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
I enjoyed Greg Morris’ [Feb. 25] column. However, I wish he had taken it one step further to explain the absurdity of these so called “sequestration” cuts as they relate to baseline budgeting.

Marijuana possession shouldn't be a crimeRestricted Content

February 23, 2013
In response to Deborah Daniels’ [Feb. 4] column regarding legalization of marijuana, everyone can agree that we should protect children from harm—there is no debate there.

Radio's real problemRestricted Content

February 16, 2013
As a former radio personality (NPR and later WHAS-AM 840 in Louisville and other stations) and broadcast operations manager and intern supervisor at the University of Louisville), I continue to shake my head at Emmis and boss Jeff Smulyan’s total swivet with cell phone operators for refusing to put radio tuners on their phones or switch them on if they exist.
More

Buses, yes, but no railRestricted Content

February 9, 2013
I support fully the improvement of the bus system in the metro area [Morris column, Jan. 28]. It is a necessity and the responsibility of government to provide access to those who need this service efficiently and cost effectively.
More

Don't expand vouchersRestricted Content

February 9, 2013
I say no to expansion of Indiana’s school voucher program, already the most liberal in the nation when it comes to taking public money and moving it to private—mostly religious—schools. I ask the Legislature, particularly the GOP super-majority, to do more for the “system of common schools” they promised to support when they swore to uphold Indiana’s Constitution.
More

Cursive is antiquatedRestricted Content

February 9, 2013
In a political climate where jobs is the watchword of every campaign, I am confused and saddened by the state Senate Education Committee’s 7-4 vote endorsing a bill that would mandate the teaching of cursive writing in elementary school.

Ben Davis university models possibilitiesRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Thank you for the comprehensive [Jan. 14] story on the accomplishments of the students of Ben Davis University High School.
More

Rusthoven was bigotedRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Far from credible criticism of “the liberal media double standard,” I interpreted Peter Rusthoven’s [Jan. 21] opinion piece “Double Standards on Israel” as an exercise in the expression of bias and bigotry.
More

Cut some freshman sportsRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
I am in total agreement with Benner’s [Jan. 7] suggestion of making incoming college freshmen ineligible for varsity sports.

Clark complicates gay marriage debateRestricted Content

January 26, 2013
Why does Micah Clark [Jan. 7 Viewpoint] blow the subject up into one of these all-inclusive ideological tornados?
More

Gun column hit markRestricted Content

January 26, 2013
Thank you for Peter J. Rusthoven's column. What a well-written, well-thought-out editorial, with substantiating articles, to better support the fact that enacting gun laws doesn't disarm the criminals.
More

Guns laws workRestricted Content

January 26, 2013
I thought it would be impossible to write about gun laws after the Newtown tragedy and not talk about the bulbous magazine clips that allow a sane or insane person to fire hundreds of rounds from an automatic weapon in seconds, but Peter Rusthoven [Jan. 7] managed to do the impossible.
More

Respect emotions in gun debateRestricted Content

January 19, 2013
Commentaries by Peter Rusthoven as well as others in Forefront [Jan. 7] do not treat two sides of fear.
More

Another side of the income debateRestricted Content

January 19, 2013
I read [in the Dec. 31 IBJ], with great dismay, that a millionaire lawyer is not able to charge his clients as much as an attorney in another state.

In favor of shrinking not-for-profit boardsRestricted Content

January 12, 2013
As a frequent consultant to not-for-profit boards, I couldn’t agree more [Dec. 24 Libman Viewpoint].

Benner was 'uplifting'Restricted Content

January 12, 2013
Thanks so very much for pointing out the many triumphs and great moments Indianapolis and Indiana had in 2012 [Dec. 31 Benner column].

Change before it's brokenRestricted Content

January 12, 2013
The dying service clubs mentioned in John Guy’s [Dec. 31 column] “How to revive dying service clubs” could benefit from following the lead of Toastmasters International which, even though it was growing, evaluated where it was and how it could best serve its membership.

Coal plant good for jobsRestricted Content

January 5, 2013
I commend Lincolnland Economic Development Corp. for finding the perfect fit in a company for our state. The coal gasification plant planned to be built in Rockport will really help our state.

Gasification plant is wise investmentRestricted Content

January 5, 2013
Lincolnland Economic Development Corp. is recruiting the $2.8 billion Indiana Gasification LLC clean energy project. The plant represents hundreds of permanent, high-paying jobs in newer, cleaner advanced industrial technologies.
