Take Our Political Poll

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

We’re doing an online poll over at our sister blog Indy Politics regarding Indy’s upcoming Mayoral and City-Council races.  If you have a second, feel free to fill it out.  With the low voter turnout we’ve been seeing, it will be interesting to see what the results are.  They will be posted on Monday.

Maybe the Mayor’s Race Will Be Interesting After All

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

Let’s face it, up until now the race for Mayor of Indianapolis has been pretty boring.  Up until now. You see, I was watching the October 16th debate on WISH-TV between Democrat Joe Hogsett and Republican Chuck Brewer.  It was pretty standard stuff and the two candidates actually seemed to agree more than they disagreed. And then there […]

Opportunity vs. Inequality

Monday, October 19th, 2015

Watching Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is a lot of like watching comedian Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm.  There’s lots of yelling, ranting and screaming, except David knows you’re not supposed to take him seriously.  It would be nice if Sanders knew that too. He has been preaching his message of “economic fairness” and […]

Quit Whining and Man Up!!!

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

The Fairly Odd Parent

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

Have you ever had one of those days where something so bizarre occurred that it took a long time for you to even believe it happened? Well I did and today was that day. I was downtown patronizing one of my usual places when my buddy, the shop owner, asked me what I was planning […]

Zero Tolerance for Zeroes

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

It looks like when it comes to giving zeroes, the Hamilton Southeastern School District has a zero tolerance policy. According to the student handbook at Fall Creek Intermediate school, if a student doesn’t turn in an assignment, they don’t get a zero.  Instead, according to the policy, “Late or missing work will be indicated in […]

Let’s Talk About Sex

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

(Warning, this blog post contains language and themes that might not be suitable for more sensitive readers.) My parents raised five boys and when we were old enough to start dating, they gave us some frank, blunt advice, “don’t let the little head do the thinking for big one.”   For most of us it worked […]
