You-review-it Monday

For me, the weekend was primarily spent attending Who's Yer Con, a free, volunteer-run gaming convention. There, I had the pleasure of hosting an epic trivia contest with former "Jeopardy" champion (and WIBC reporter) Eric Berman. If you have an interest in such events, you don't have to wait until the epic GenCon in August. Between now and then, there's Indy PopCon at the Indiana Convention Center and InConjunction at the Indianapolis Marriott East (where I'll be toastmaster) and others. Fun all around.

I also finally made it to the Phoenix Theatre's "North of the Boulevard" (thoughts here) and had the pleasure of gathering with some local theater folks for a private reading of a play-in-progress by a visiting writer. And during downtime, I read the autobiography of filmmaker William Friedkin, best known for "The French Connection" and "The Exorcist" (although I confess I was just as interested in his time shooting the Sonny & Cher film "Good Times").

And you?

Did you get to see the Robert Indiana show at the IMA (thoughts here)? Go to Adult Swim at the Children's Museum? Spend "An Evening with Groucho" at the Palladium?

Share any thoughts on your own A&E weekend below.

  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
