This week, you can win tickets to see Kurt Elling perform "1619 Broadway: The Brill Building Project" at the Cabaret at the Columbia Club. For a preview, give a listen here.

All you need to do is enter below and name your favorite song by a Brill Building songwriter.

Not sure who qualifies?

Here's a starter list: Burt Bacharach/Hal David ("The Look of Love"), Marvin Hamlisch ("The Way We Were"), Jerry Leiber/Mike Stoller ("Jailhouse Rock"), Laura Nyro ("Wedding Bell Blues"), Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil ("Here You Come Again"), Neil Diamond ("Sweet Caroline"), Sonny Bono ("I Got You Babe"), Neil Sedaka ("Laughter in the Rain"), Paul Simon ("Mrs. Robinson"), Phil Spector ("To Know Him is to Love Him"), John Kander/Fred Ebb ("Cabaret"), Tommy Boyce/Bobby Hart  ("Last Train to Clarksville"), and Ellie Greenwich ("Leader of the Pack").

Clearly Elling had a lot to choose from.

I'll pick one winner at random.

Good luck.

  1. As I understand it, the idea is to offer police to live in high risk areas in exchange for a housing benefit/subsidy of some kind. This fact means there is a choice for the officer(s) to take the offer and receive the benefit. In terms of mandating living in a community, it is entirely reasonable for employers to mandate public safety officials live in their community. Again, the public safety official has a choice, to live in the area or to take another job.

  2. The free market will seek its own level. If Employers cannot hire a retain good employees in Marion Co they will leave and set up shop in adjacent county. Marion Co already suffers from businesses leaving I would think this would encourage more of the same.

  3. We gotta stop this Senior crime. Perhaps long jail terms for these old boozers is in order. There are times these days (more rather than less) when this state makes me sick.

  4. One option is to redistribute the payroll tax already collected by the State. A greater share could be allocated to the county of the workplace location as opposed to the county of residency. Not a new tax, just re-allocate what is currently collected.

  5. Have to agree with Mal Burgess. The biggest problem is massive family breakdown in these neighborhoods. While there are a lot of similiarities, there is a MASSIVE difference between 46218 and 46219. 46219 is diluted by some stable areas, and that's probably where the officers live. Incentivizing is fine, but don't criticize officers for choosing not to live in these neighbor hoods. They have to have a break from what is arguably one of the highest stress job in the land. And you'll have to give me hard evidence that putting officers there is going to make a significant difference. Solid family units, responsible fathers, siblings with the same fathers, engaged parents, commitment to education, respect for the rule of law and the importance of work/a job. If the families and the schools (and society) will support these, THEN we can make a difference.
