Indiana State Police release recent pull-over patrol results

Yah, Sheridan, West Indy, all non-ghetto areas probably seem the same to you. Wide open spaces where you can't score crack. No wonder you hate them.  (Aug 26, 2008 | post #12)

Mass transit options discussed Monday night in Fishers

If they can blow a billion dollars of my tax money on a new stadium for millionaires, I don't see what's so bad about a little public transportation. There are those who would argue the new stadium somehow benefits everyone because it brings tourism to the city. Well, tourists don't usually drive here for conventions, they fly, and one of the biggest complaints against Indy as a convention city is that our public transportation sucks. If we ever want to get our money back from building the giant stadium and convention center, we need to make our city as appealing as possible to big conventions. That means more hotels (already being constructed) and public transportation (dragging their feet).  (Aug 12, 2008 | post #192)

How many different names are you going to use to post the exact same comment?  (Aug 7, 2008 | post #186)

FairTrain celebrates 25th anniversary

"Mass transportation idiots" are taxpayers too. These things get pushed through by the majority, so if more taxpayers want public transportation than those who don't want it, it will be passed. As gas prices increase, more people are liking the idea of public transportation. I know I would never ride the bus in Indy, but I might consider a commuter train. Heck, if gas eventually reach $10 a gallon, I might even reconsider the bus. It's kind of like my neighborhood association. They wanted to put up a new fence at the interest to our neighborhood because they though it "would look pretty" and add value to our homes. The cost per homeowner was $150. They got enough names on a petition to get it passes, so even though I think the fence is moronic, I still have to send in my check for $150 to the neighborhood association.  (Aug 7, 2008 | post #3)

Carmel liquor store robbed

Read the comments on the original stories themselves rather than the comments here. They aren't nearly as bad.  (Jul 31, 2008 | post #28)

Indiana State Police release recent pull-over patrol results

You're an idiot. Nowhere in that article does it say results were collected until the day they were released (which wasn't June 2, by the way, that's just the day they were PRINTED...assume a 48 hour turnaround minimum). The reason the article state between 10 pm and 2 am beginning May 22 is that the patrol started at 10 pm on May 22 and ended at 2 am on May 23. Even though it was only a 4-hour patrol, it began on the evening of one day and ended on the morning of the second day. Feel free to call them to confirm if your extremely tiny brain can't wrap itself around this concept. By the way, I didn't go to high school in Sheridan. I've never even driven through Sheridan. I'm from Indy, west side.  (Jul 22, 2008 | post #10)

Mayer losing mainstream appeal

It's an Indy story because it's a review of his Indianapolis-area concert. The story was "active" the second it was posted...I'm not sure what you mean by that.  (Jul 9, 2008 | post #9)

Cpetr13 seems to have confused "Mayer" for "Mayor".  (Jul 8, 2008 | post #3)

Ticket sales set for first Colts game in new stadium

About $300. Heck, even a minor league baseball game costs well over $100 for a family of 4 between tickets and snacks.  (Jul 2, 2008 | post #2)

Alums agree, IU's image has taken hit

Yah, as an IU grad, I wear my IU shirts to support my school...the academics, not the athletics. I've never been much of a sports fan. I wish we put as much time and energy into academics in this country as we do in athletics. We wouldn't be behind most of Asia and Europe in education if we did.  (Jul 2, 2008 | post #5)

Should adult bookstores be regulated, even though

No, morality shouldn't be legislated.  (Jul 2, 2008 | post #2)

Boxcars roll off Eighth Street rail line

The ITM saves taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars a year by maintaining and repairing one of our few remaining rail lines for free. This same line is actually going to be used for the new commuter train that will be available in Hamilton County a few years from now. When gas is $15 a gallon, I doubt if anyone will be complaining about this train and it's daily trips to downtown Indy.  (Jun 23, 2008 | post #11)

State police put new Mustangs on patrol

I could see that state police having need for SUVs though. There are many situations where they might need to go off-road.  (Jun 10, 2008 | post #8)

Where do you get this 2 week figure? The patrol lasted 4 hours.  (Jun 10, 2008 | post #6)

EPA figures for the Prius are 60 mpg city, 51 mpg highway, which are pretty damn close to what people get. Some do better than that, some worse, depending on driving style.  (Jun 2, 2008 | post #6)
