For me, the weekend included a visit to the Eiteljorg Museum's "Best of the West" show, tweeting absurdities during the Miss America pageant, and reading Stephen Greenblatt's speculative biography "Will in the World" in anticipation of a season that includes lots of Shakespeare plays. I also took time to engage in a spirited discussion with a local actor regarding a recent review

And you? Did you get to any of the Indy Jazz Fest performances around town? Take advantage of the glorious weather and hit the Zoo or Conner Prairie? Sit in on Chicago with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra?

What A&E did you experience over the weekend?

  • Buble Does It Again
    My husband and I saw Michael Buble last night at Banker's Life. His show was bigger and better, yet still felt intimate. And it's always amazing when he finishes with A Song for You off-mic, still filling the house with his sound and his passion. My husband, who wasn't keen on going to start with, is now a big fan. Bonus!
  • Diane Schuur was great
    Diane Schuur's set may have been a tad on the short side because it was a two-show night, but she (and the trio accompanying her) filled every song with tremendous energy and musicality. Few singers can move so effortlessly into their head voice and with great volume, but she did it consistently throughout, showing only slight signs of how aging has impacted her overall range. It was a wonderful night out.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
