Pacers agree to community service

No, but the Star and the idiots on here that take its word for solid gold would have you believe so.  (Mar 17, 2008 | post #36)

Carson wins seat in 7th District race

They don't care if they are represented. So they got their wish.  (Mar 12, 2008 | post #163)

Pastor warns of violence if immigration bill dies

If you read the entire article you would note that Delph denied organizing the conference.  (Mar 11, 2008 | post #205)

Consumer tipping index

If you cannot afford to pay the tip then don't walk in the door. Not tipping because of financial limitations is the lamest thing ever. Economy my foot. This is just a bunch of cheapskates pointing at a scape goat to justify their rude behavior. If you have a problem with your service then talk to the manager. Otherwise leave $2 for every $10 (round up) or go to McDonalds. No I do not rely on tips for income. I do however respect the fact that these people are trying to earn a living wage instead of sitting around waiting for a handout.  (Mar 10, 2008 | post #87)

Dunleavy gives offense real boost

Actually this is the same team that has started for the last month or so.  (Mar 3, 2008 | post #27)

Murder suspect nabbed after leaving Pacer's home

I wonder how many of you calling for them to get rid of 'all the thugs' would be suing your employers if they fired you because your spouse, child or roommate committed a crime. The only thing more depressing than the Pacers' play this season is hearing and reading from thousands of fair-weather hypocrites about what should be done with the players.  (Feb 28, 2008 | post #306)

House Dems reject assessed-value tax cap

Before you berate this guy for being a republican you should first understand that republicans would be prefer to be taxed at the lowest possible level of government (at least those that understand what the republican party stands for). republicans think this is the best way to do business because they have the most control over their locally elected officials and hence the most possible control over public spending. Yes, localities that can't function without a local tax increase are in a quandry, but that is a good thing. Most citizens are willing to pay a little tax for public works, safety, economic development etc. What republicans don't like is paying for it in another town.  (Feb 26, 2008 | post #25)

House Dems reject assessed-value tax cap

They are trying to base property tax on one's ability to pay the tax instead of that value of ones home. This is a respectable motive but a lame way of achieving it. If they want to do this then just eliminate residential property taxes and increase income taxes and sales taxes. Keep the property tax on business, investment and farm property and move on. If they HAD to do something silly like this then make it 1% of income OR assessed value, whichever is less.  (Feb 26, 2008 | post #19)

School sued by teen who refused to stand for pledge

They are only suing to protect their academic record. This should easily be settled out of court if the account from the school in the article is correct. As for the idiots asking for the kid's family to be deported, I think you should all be ashamed of yourselves. Standing and reciting the pledge is merely a tradition. A respectful and good one IMHO, but still just a tradition. It is not a precondition of citizenship. People are (and should remain) free to follow (or not) any tradition as they see fit. Yes, it may make others uncomfortable, but that is OK. It is the differences among us and our ability to function despite them that makes this country so great.  (Feb 26, 2008 | post #176)

1 escapee from S. Ind. jail still free

Was there a contest to see how short this story could be written? How about a physical description of the guy still on the loose? Possibly even a contact number for the proper authorities to notify?  (Feb 25, 2008 | post #6)

Lack of a 'go-to' guy a Boiler boon and bane

I think we should hold off all prongostications about how good this Boiler team is until we have played Wisconsin and IU. They are the contenders and we Boilers are the pretenders until we show otherwise.  (Jan 23, 2008 | post #21)

Senator: Immigration bill misperceived as race issue

"Even though the strategy is to go after the employer, it does dwindle down to the undocumented worker," Gonzalez said. "In our community, we are already seeing folks begin to flee, to leave out of fear. "Having a bill that is so strong . . . it is making a loud statement toward our Latino community . . . in essence that, 'It's time for you guys to move on.' " So the plan is working?!?!  (Jan 17, 2008 | post #89)

Colts' MVP? give it to the reserves

I'd be more worried about the Jags if I were the Patriots. They had better hope that its a nice day and Randy Moss can catch practice lobs from Brady. If they have to sock it out in a running game then Indy will be hosting the AFC championship contest.  (Jan 9, 2008 | post #92)
