If I had my way there would be a $1.00 more tax on alcohol/smoking. I lost a son do to drinking and a Father to smoking. How many more people got to die over this stupidness, before we all can understand that wrong is wrong.
I am sorry for your loss, but as prohibition proved, you can not legislate morality. Trampling on the rights of others should never be the solution of choice in a free society.

Why can't the ridiculously over paid players for the Colts and the Pacers give back and pay some fees for playing in the new stadium? Forget all these extra taxes. We are all paying too much anyway, this is just what we need (NOT). The economy stinks so they want us to pay more??
The Colts are paying fees.
They paid $100 mil toward the building of the stadium.
When the construction went over budget the Colts chipped in an additional $10 mil.
They pay a lease of $250K per year and they pay for all operating expenses on days that they use the stadium, which is no more that 19 days per year.
IF the CIB had been civil, and approached the Colts in a professional manner, they might have gotten a more positive response. Instead they decided to bad mouth the Colts, spread lies about Jim Irsay, and demand $5 mil.
That ad in the Star was so juvenile. They might as well have gone on the Jerry Springer Show.
The CIB has some kind of reverse Midas touch. Everything they touch doesn't turn into gold, it turns into sh*t.
They have the entire city talking about what the Colts should or should not do, but nobody is talking about how badly the CIB f**ked up, and what The CIB needs to do to fix the mess!
