Does Indianapolis Have An Identity Crisis?

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Recently, I had lunch with a friend of mine in the heart of the city.  It was a very nice north side eatery.  The food was great, however as I looked at the “yuppiesque” crowd of patrons they reminded me of what I call “hybrid hypocrites”,  they are the people who want mass transit so […]

Stop the “War on Christmas” Before It Starts

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Every year for the past few years a bunch of people get their panties in a bunch over the alleged war on Christmas.  So once again, in my efforts to save a lot of people a bunch of unnecessary grief and hassle, allow me to re-post my original essay on how silly the whole thing […]

New Addition

Saturday, November 27th, 2010

I hope you are enjoying your Holiday weekend.  We’ve had a new addition in the Shabazz household.  No, not a child; a dog. As some of you may know my wife’s dog of nearly 17 years passed away in October.   After a good period of mourning and grieving I bought her a new one this […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

As tradition dictates, I want to wish you all, friend and foe alike, a Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope you are able to spend time with friends and loved ones, and if not, maybe it’s time to go get some.   I’ll be back in a few days. And by the way, if there’s one thing for […]

School Scuffle

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels had some tough words on Tuesday for school officials as he spelled out his 2011 legislative agenda. Daniels labeled complaints by school officials who say they don’t have enough money because of tax caps and reduced revenues as “outrageous whining”.  He said school officials need to devote less money to administrators […]

Tuesday’s Tidbits, Part One

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

Today may be a double post day.  There are some developments taking place this afternoon that I’m going to try to blog about later, but we’ve got a couple items this morning that need attention. $chool Daze Franklin and Perry Township Schools are announcing major budget cuts in the wake of property tax caps and […]

Up In Smoke

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Here we go again!   The anti-smoking people are back and they are pushing for a total smoking ban at both the state and local level here in Indianapolis, however it seems their efforts have already gone up in flames even before they were able to really get out of the gate. At the state level […]

Out of Work, Out of Luck!!!

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

A good friend of mine has been out of work for a while.  He’s been doing some things on the side to keep himself afloat, but he hit a wall a while back.    He was getting discouraged and then an opportunity to manage another friend’s business for a while came along.  It wasn’t something he […]

Rabid Responses

Friday, November 19th, 2010

I know this is going to sound a little odd, but I really am looking forward to Rev. Al Sharpton bringing his Negro, oops, National Action Network to Indianapolis next year.   Not because I’m going to love watching these guys walk right up to the legal line and be the attack dogs for the Democratic […]
