Amazon.com ?? That's great!! Now maybe my Amazon order will come to me in a more timely manner :) I can't wait to see what the "but-it's-not-enough and why-Indiana?" Neanderthals say about this one.

Ok, I'm all for tax abatements, but they have to make sense. How does a $28m tax abatement over 10 years make sense when the annual expected tax revenue is only $333k? That's quite a difference from the $2.8m per year they're giving. Even factoring in other potential increased revenue, it seems lopsided

More jobs coming to Indiana and the Indy Metro Area, and from a neat company like Amazon.com . That's neat. Keep it up, Indiana.

Come on, where's the gripers on this one? The "increase in taxes?" No. The "increase in traffic?" No. The Ditch Mitch crowd? Nope. The they-only-came 'cuz-Indiana-gave them-subsidies-funded-by-the-t axpayers crowd? Nope. The why-would-they-come-to-Indiana -crowd? Nope.

Let the sorry A** griping begin.....

Where are the complainers that they did not look at the Indy eastside. It is such a lovely part of town and has vallets to park your cars for you (only thing is, you will never find the car again). Oh yeah, we mustn't forget the complainers who, without any real info, complain that the pay will suck.

Well there goes the loophole for sending my packages to my parents in Indy instead of paying sales tax out here. Time to cut up the ol Amazon card. Good news for the state though.

Great job. Perhaps this will bring more divesification to the schools in the area with minority jobs and state quotas. Hurray!!!
