If This Is Heaven, I’ll Gladly Take Hell

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Stuff  like this make me glad I’m agnostic.

Susan’s Successful Run

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

by Brian Jessen I don’t think that were many people who expected to see Susan Brooks come out as the top vote getter in the 5th District Crowded Primary earlier this month.  And to be honest, I was one who thought she’d finish a distant third. Think about it.  Zero name ID in many parts […]

Want to Keep Your Exemption?

Monday, May 28th, 2012

If you are a hookah bar or cigar bar in Indianapolis, you have until Friday to file with the city to keep your exemption from the stricter smoking ban that goes into effect June 1. Under an ordinance passed by the city, smoking will be banned in nearly all bars and taverns at 6:00 a.m. […]

Have a Good Memorial Day Weekend

Friday, May 25th, 2012

As you celebrate this Memorial Day weekend, please take a few minutes to remember those men and women who gave their lives in service and defense to our great nation.  If it weren’t for them, we would have the freedom to argue and bicker with each other.

A Marion County Sheriff’s affiliated with the McGruff the Crime Dog program has been charged with felony theft, burglary and possession of a controlled substance for reportedly breaking into a friend’s home to steal prescription pain killers.

ISTEP Cheating Scandal Could Impact Statewide Education Race

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

The likely Democratic nominee for Superintendent of Public Instruction could find herself in an odd position of helping defend the same teachers who are in the middle of a major ISTEP cheating scandal in Washington Township Schools. Both WTHR-TV and Fox 59 News have reported that the Indiana Department of Education is investigating what could […]

Get a Job

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

The whining by individuals who feel a need to be on unemployment in perpetuity gets real old real quick.   So in an effort to help promote job growth, I am using this blog space to help promote U.S. Senator Dan Coats’ job fair next week. It’s Lafayette, but worth the drive.  There will be more […]

Your Complimentary Cheat Sheet

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

Although the Cheat Sheet is a subscriber-based publication, like a girl I used to date, we don’t mind giving it away for free every once in a while.   This is one of those times.  If you like what you read, subscribe.  For the price of a martini and a good cigar, it’s well worth it.  […]

For Whom the Road Tolls

Monday, May 21st, 2012

I have always maintained that in politics if you stick around long enough, you will eventually see everything.   Already, my Democratic friends are lamenting that money from the lease of the Indiana Toll Road is about to expire.   And because there are still 69 years left on the lease they say that this clearly demonstrates […]

“Don’t Pay Them No ‘Tention”

Saturday, May 19th, 2012

I decided to title this blog post after a phrase my grandmother used to use when dealing with silly people who would do nothing but waste her, and other people’s, valuable time.    Hopefully Mayor Greg Ballard will take my grandmother’s advice when dealing with some so-called “civil rights” leaders here in Indianapolis who want a […]
