For me, the weekend included hosting the Indy Men's Magazine Reunion Celebration benefiting Indy Reads. As the editor of that mag during its five-year run, I can't be objective about the pleasures of hearing such a talented batch of writers sharing their words. I can, however, say that Mass Ave.'s Indy Reads Bookstore is a terrific venue for readings and I look forward to attending--and hosting--many more events there.

I also visited Garfield Park for a Spirit & Place event, the Indianapolis Art Center to check out the latest addition to its sculpture garden, and the Service Center for a play by NoExit Performance. 

No, I haven't seen the new James Bond film yet. But I'm looking forward to it.

What about you? What did you hear, see or do this weekend?

    With all the hype we were looking forward to the new bond movie but are sadly disappointed, it is an ok action flick, but it's not Bond. Daniel Craig plays another serious spy role without the trademark cheeky humor. The new Q is a horribly boring pick, there are dozens of actors who would have made that role more fun. And yes I MISS the exploding pens. Tragically the original Bond car is destroyed before reaching its full prop potential. Judi Dench"s M plays out her role well, read about her macular degeneration elsewhere. Fiennes is good, Javier Bardiem is excellent. Bring back Pierce Brosnan please.

  1. I could be wrong, but I don't think Butler views the new dorm as mere replacements for Schwitzer and or Ross.

  2. An increase of only 5% is awesome compared to what most consumers face or used to face before passage of the ACA. Imagine if the Medicaid program had been expanded to the 400k Hoosiers that would be eligible, the savings would have been substantial to the state and other policy holders. The GOP predictions of plan death spirals, astronomical premium hikes and shortages of care are all bunk. Hopefully voters are paying attention. The Affordable Care Act (a.k.a Obamacare), where fully implemented, has dramatically reduced the number of uninsured and helped contained the growth in healthcare costs.

  3. So much for competition lowering costs.

  4. As I understand the proposal, Keystone would take on the debt, not the city/CRC. So the $104K would not be used to service the $3.8M bond. Keystone would do that with its share.

  5. Adam C, if anything in Carmel is "packed in like sardines", you'll have to show me where you shop for groceries. Based on 2014 population estimates, Carmel has around 85,000 people spread across about 48 square miles, which puts its density at well below 1800 persons/sq mi, which is well below Indianapolis (already a very low-density city). Noblesville is minimally less dense than Carmel as well. The initiatives over the last few years have taken what was previously a provincial crossroads with no real identity beyond lack of poverty (and the predictably above-average school system) and turned it into a place with a discernible look, feel, and a center. Seriously, if you think Carmel is crowded, couldn't you opt to live in the remaining 95% of Indiana that still has an ultra-low density development pattern? Moreover, if you see Carmel as "over-saturated" have you ever been to Chicago--or just about any city outside of Indiana?
