You-review-it Monday

For me, it started with an early Friday visit to the ISO and the faux-Beatles at Hilbert Circle Theatre and a stop in at UA Circle Centre to catch "Aliens in the Attic" in preperation for a guest host house on WFYI's "Film Soceyology" radio show.

It continued with an oddly underpopulated but hugely rewarding appearance by John Leguizamo at the IRT (sorry you missed it), and a rain-sprinkled "Much Ado About Nothing" at White River State Park (at which I hosted the Saturday pre-show). I also found enough reading time to finish Earl J. Hess and Pratibha A. Dabholkar's "Singin' in the Rain: The Making of an American Masterpiece."

I hope to talk about Leguizamo and Heartland Actors Repertory Theatre's "Much Ado" in an upcoming column or blog. As to the latter, it's the rare film book I've found that pays close attention to the detailed work of creating dance. It also carefully (if sometimes repetitively) gives a clear idea where each member of the creative team was in their career when the film was made--and how that place influenced their work. Insightful and worth reading for movie buffs.

So tell us about your A&E experiences this past weekend?

  • I witnessed my first Shakespearean play on Friday night and found it to be a very rewarding expereince, not only for me but for my high school aged kids as well. With the exception of some minor recurring microphone issues, the play went off without a hitch

  1. Once a Marion Co. commuter tax is established, I'm moving my organization out of Indianapolis. Face it, with the advancement in technology, it's getting more cost effective to have people work out of their homes. The clock is running out on the need for much of the office space in Indianapolis. Establishing a commuter tax will only advance the hands of the clock and the residents of Indianapolis will be left to clean up the mess they created on their own, with much less resources.

  2. The 2013 YE financial indicates the City of Indianapolis has over $2 B in assets and net position of $362.7 M. All of these assets have been created and funded by taxpayers. In 2013 they took in $806 M in revenues. Again, all from tax payers. Think about this, Indianapolis takes in $800 M per year and they do not have enough money? The premise that government needs more money for services is false.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
