Council panel puts off vote on gun-firing ban

So let me get this straight Gary - you want to take folks excercing their constitutional right to assemble and state their opposition to legislation and put them in jail? Are you just trolling for kicks, or are you stark raving mad?  (Apr 18, 2007 | post #10)

IU reviews law professor's work

Welcome to the forum, professor Tanford. You sure think very highly of yourself, but paranoid rantings about boogeymen out to get you because you opposed school prayer or toll roads isn't going to gain much traction. None of what you stated above deals at all with the case here. It's a simple question - did you, or did you not, improperly use your position at a state educational facility to aid you in your litigation against the state? A simple yes or no will suffice, professor.  (Apr 4, 2007 | post #13)

Pacers' image suffers another blow

A family of four going to a Pacer game will spend about $120, including the price of lower-range tickets. A game usually lasts three hours. That's $40 an hour you're paying the Pacers to entertain you. $40 an hour to watch players that don't care half the time. Sounds like a bad investment to me.  (Feb 9, 2007 | post #6)

He'd rather play golf than do job in Washington

"He represents a district so overwhelmingly Republican that a dusty portrait of Abe Lincoln could likely win election in a landslide. " True, and Julia Carson represents a district so overwhelmingly Democratic that a ham sandwich would likely win election if it ran as a Democrat. See why we need term limits AND an end to gerrymandering? This is not democracy, but rather like Imperial Rome with it's senators-for-life. Why bother having elections?  (Feb 7, 2007 | post #16)

Democrats call for higher corporate tax

Quite right. How many times has the dome been paid for? They never did repeal the "special " sales tax for that thing. We could have three or four domes by now. But instead, the tax hike got folded permanently into the city/county budget.  (Feb 6, 2007 | post #13)

Sorry, churches, the party's over

I'd go ahead and do it anyway. A little civil disobedience to an absurd law. What's the NFL going to do, break down the doors of churches and start whipping out tape measures?  (Feb 2, 2007 | post #28)

Time to wake up from dream houses

These cookie-cutter housing developments are a blight in more ways than one. Not only are they generally ugly, but they're mass produced and sold to anyone that has a pulse. Now we're starting to see the consequences - neighborhoods of beige, vinyl-sided homes increasingly pockmarked with government auction signs and abandoned properties.  (Jan 29, 2007 | post #2)

Dancing their way to Miami

At last! Usually Super Bowl Sunday is just an excuse to throw a party - the game is background noise. Not this time! Go Colts!  (Jan 22, 2007 | post #8)

Indy man evicted from van

Hey, the Colts won't need the Hoosier Dome soon as Jimmy Irsay is getting a new playhouse, so maybe Mr. Green can live there. (Yes, I meant Hoosier Dome - I, along with all other Marion County taxpayers paid for it about four times over, so I will call it what I will. To hell with RCA.) But seriously, what a raw deal. Here's a nice old man, minding his own business, living how he wants to live (how many of us can say that), but then here comes the government uninvited to turn his life upside down. p.s. Memo to the Star - please never, ever, do a story about me. I've got enough problems without Big Brother coming to get me.  (Dec 29, 2006 | post #42)

60 mph driver-switch brings charges

It seems unfair that while it is incredibly difficult for good folks to adopt children, gibbering idiots like these can breed at will. Take the child away now before any more harm is done by these morons. Let the child have a chance.  (Dec 29, 2006 | post #26)

Let's work together for top-notch force

This is nothing but a power grab for Bart Peterson. If you've noticed, there's been an ongoing assault on all governmental functions in Marion County, with Peterson wanting to merge police and fire, and abolish the township organizations and bring their functions under the city's umbrella. That means more jobs directly under him, and that in turn means more patronage and cronyism. Indianapolis is well on it's way to becoming a modern-day Tammany Hall, with Peterson as Boss Tweed.  (Dec 29, 2006 | post #12)
