I knew Marin wouldn't help his side win. He was no asset, just a big ol' bloviation of a liability.

I bet an Anothny Robbins class would change his attitude. It may not change his oppinions but just maybe he could accept that there was more than Ron out there supporting the Mayor.

Because the thugs won't take it over and homeless won't sleep there at night?

I don't live in Carmel, and don't want to (althought I could). It is amazing how petty and jealous people can be.

Carmel has this park because they PAID FOR IT! There would be a lot more people with money staying in Indy if there were less crime, better schools, etc.

Good job people of Carmel. Build something to be proud of, then protect it.

To Jen in Mooresville and her socialistic immature opinions:
it is called capitalism.
The harder you work, the more you have. The more you have, the more you can acquire.

As simple as that.
The US provides opportunities for EVERYONE, proof of that is that many new inmigrants such as myself can build a great life from nothing, having escaped famine and poverty.

More so for those born in the US.
Black thugs can have a free ride on our universities thanks to 21st Century Scholars, but they choose to, thanks to the Julia Carsons, Jesse Jacksons and their ilk, to destroy what others build up.

The center is beautiful! Once everything calms down, everything will run smoothly -- parking will not be a problem eventually, and there will be enough room for everyone.

I just don't understand why people are talking to people in carmel and saying "your park." This park is a positive thing for kids. Kids can spend their time there rather than on the streets and doing drugs. It doesn't matter if the park was here in Indianapolis (downtown) or not. I mean does that mean people of Carmel have to speak of the colt's stadium as "our [your] stadium?" I don't think it should matter. And the colt's stadium was built using our tax dollars-does that mean we should get into the games for free? I don't think that is going to happen. I think people are wayyyy overthinking this. I see it as a positive. I'm not a resident of Carmel but I am actually really excited about going to the park-I heard it was very nice. It's not all about politics and who has to pay and who doesn't and race or anything like that. Just my opinion!:-)

Same reason the Children's Museum charges admission even though they do not need the money - keep the black kids from the neighborhood out.
