Indiana Week in Preview

Monday, January 31st, 2011

A lot of us will be focusing on the funeral of Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Officer David Moore this week; however there are some other items on the radar screen that will be worth paying attention to.   I’ll likely blog more about them on Wednesday, but here’s a quick preview. The Ten-Point Coalition, City of Indianapolis […]

Teaching Talking Points

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

As education reform moves through the Indiana General Assembly, I managed to obtain a copy of the State Teacher’s Union (ISTA) talking points on various school reform proposals.  It’s a pretty interesting read, to say the least.  Here are some of the highlights… The proposal would give Dr. Tony Bennett, Superintendent of Public Instruction, “dictatorial […]

Read and Weep

Friday, January 28th, 2011

I know there were a lot of political happenings Thursday but they will take a back seat today.  I’ve embedded the probable cause affidavit regarding the Thomas Hardy case.  Hardy has formally  been charged with the murder of David Moore.  I thought it was important to post it today.   Funeral arrangements have set for Tuesday […]

The Last King of I.P.S.

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

I went back and forth before deciding whether to use the above phrase as the title for this blog post.  But the more I thought about it, the more fitting I thought it would be.  I am talking about Dr. Eugene White, Superintendent of the school district that hopefully will one day formerly be known […]

A Thought on Death

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

I used to be in favor of the death penalty but over time my opinion changed.  Not because I didn’t think some people weren’t bad actors, but simply because I did not think it was a deterrent to crime.  However, in the wake of what happened to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Officer David Moore, I am […]

What Kind of “Community” Is This?

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about two incidents this past weekend in Indianapolis, the shooting of Officer David Moore and the two teens shot near Circle Center Mall.   I’ve been asking myself why these types of events happen?  The easy answer of course is that there are bad people in this world […]

Tea Talk

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Here’s the interview from Saturday’s Tea Party rally with organizers Monca Boyer and Greg Fettig.  It’s about 10 minutes long. Tea Party By the way, my sources tell me that FreedomWorks wants to help the Indiana Tea Party groups defeat Richard Lugar but has some serious concerns about their organizational ability.

To Serve and Protect

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Despite the controversies regarding the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department this past year, the shooting of 29-year old Officer David Moore should remind of us of two things.  First, police work is very dangerous business and officers literally put their lives on the line everyday. Moore was shot four times during a routine traffic stop on […]

Time To Tea Off

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

On a very cold and bitter Saturday morning, about 150 people who are mad at Dick Lugar about something, gathered just north of Tipton, Indiana to begin to plot his political demise.   They represented the various factions of the tea party movement across Indiana and they claim to represent nearly 350,000 Hoosiers. They did the […]
