--Consider a stop at the Indiana Historical Society some time in the next few weeks. Most of it--including the gift shop, "You are There: 1945 Hoosier Home Front" and the History Lab will be closing to the public beginning Jan. 3 for extensive building renovations. Questions: Do you think most people here know the difference beween the Indiana Historical Society and the Indiana State Museum? What can be done to change that?

--There's interesting and compelling speculation at "The Business of Classical Music" about the future of recorded classical music. Blogger Bill Stensurd argues that the big three labels will be out of the classical music business in two years and that most recordings will be of live music. "Recorded music," he says, "will have no commercial value other than promotion." So have you bought a classical CD or downloaded anything lately?

--Exciting news this morning from the Indiana State Museum, which has scored the world's largest private collection of Abraham Lincoln memorabilia. Wide public availability was key to the pitch.

--This time of year is challenging for a certain A&E journalist trying to find worthy events to highlight in his weekly e-mail blast. Make sure you keep the pitches coming.

  • A friend forwarded me the IBJ's article on the fact that the Fort Wayne Lincoln collection will stay in Indiana instead of going to Pennsylvania or some place else. Yay, us! (Us meaning Indiana, of course!)

    Then I noticed who had written the IBJ article. Hey! I thought. I know Kathleen McLaughlin from Lou's blog!

    Small world, eh? Go, Kathleen! Go professional journalists! (And, of course, professional critics. Go, Lou!)

    And go, Indiana State Museum-led consortium!

    This is very, very exciting news.

  1. Choice between a democrat and a question mark? Take the question mark. We have all seen what the democrats will do.

  2. Its easy to blame workers. What about the Management of the Mill. Its not smart in business to not have a back up plan. Workers are afforded sick days in most cases. Union or not. Whether drunk partying, or a real sickness. Why would you as a businessman/woman not have a rotation of workers incase this happens. This is not an exclusive union protection. If the company can prove bad intentions on the part of any union employee. They can take action. Most CBA's have a 3 strike policy. Just like most Non-union company policies. You should read a CBA sometime. There are protections for companies too. Unions understand that businesses need to make money. If they don't, the union's member won't have a place to work.

  3. My kids play hockey on the North side and we have been very happy with the youth program. More Ice would create more opportunity for kids to pay this great sport. With 3 rinks that would also create more figure skating opportunities. What better gift to give your kids than a sport they will love!

  4. Naah, only Indy place fans were robbed of seeing Zanardi race. CART fans saw his amazing talents just about every weekend. And F1 fans saw him too. Zanardi didn't care he wasn't at Indy, neither do 99.18% of other race fans world wide. And CART fans are quite pleased of the domination of their drivers and owners have had at Indy, in the IRL, and in the current Indycar series....almost 99.18% of the time since 2000 Indy 500. I respect Zanardi, but his life goes on without Indy. Sucks to be you Capt.

  5. So let me get this right: gun permits online are fraud proof, but voting is as easy as 1-2-3.--But at least we agree that someone without a photo ID cannot be trusted with a gun.
