Takeover or Turnaround (Part 2)

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

This is the second installment in a series of blog posts this week regarding the possible takeover of several failing Indianapolis Public Schools by the State of Indiana. When I was a young boy growing up, my grandmother used to have a saying.  She used to say “you don’t believe fat meat is greasy.”  To […]

Takeover or Turnaround (Part 1)

Monday, May 30th, 2011

I hadn’t planned to start posting again until tomorrow, but I didn’t want to wait and thought this was a topic definitely worth discussing. So here is part one. This week I’m focusing my blog posts to education and the likelihood the Indiana Department of Education will intervene and take over several failing Indianapolis Public […]

Happy Memorial Day

Sunday, May 29th, 2011

As you can imagine, I’m taking a couple days off to commemorate Memorial Day.  There are the family cookout traditions, but of course Memorial Day is about remembering the men and women who died serving this country so we can enjoy our freedoms.  I’ll be back on Tuesday.   I’m going to spend a lot of […]

Target Downtown

Friday, May 27th, 2011

With the news that Nordstrom is leaving Circle Center Mall, I am going to exercise a point of personal privilege and encourage the movers and shakers of this town to see if Target can fill the void. I’ve always felt that a store like Target is the one thing downtown Indy was missing. It’s worked […]

Melina and Me

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Democratic Mayoral candidate Melina Kennedy Wednesday unveiled her “education” plan. Since I’m not on their media distribution list, I can say she and staff were surprised to see me there.  She outlined her proposal and took questions.   I know you all expecting some snide comments and criticism but I’m going to surprise all of […]

In Mitch’s Own Words

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels spent some time with the news media today speaking on a number of issues; his decision to not run for the Presidency, the current crop of Presidential candidates, the recent Supreme Court ruling that there is no right to reasonably defend yourself from police if they enter your home illegally and […]

Tuesday Tidbits!!!

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

The only thing better than getting more than 900 birthday wishes (Facebook, Twitter, e-mails, text messages, phones calls) is the political gossip, rumor and innuendo that comes along with it.   So without further delay, here we go… Governor Mitch Daniels’ mood was described to me Monday as “majorly bummed” because he is not running […]

Another 525,600 Minutes

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Today is your favorite political pundit’s birthday.  So I’m going to spend the day doing what I love to do, talking (we’ll be discussing Mitch Daniels’ decision not to run for President; easiest three hours of radio in the Universe), smoke a good cigar, have a few good cocktails, play a few video games, and […]
