The $30,000 Bad Idea

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

A proposal is being introduced at Monday night’s City-County Council meeting that would raise Mayor-elect Joe Hogsett’s expected salary from $95,000 to $125,000 annually when he takes office in January. In the world of bad ideas, politically speaking, this ranks up there with inviting Jared Fogel over to babysit. As I wrote over at Indy […]

The Irony of the Economy

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

How ironic is this?  Apparently the economy is improving so much in Indiana that the Department of Workforce Development is laying off 60 employees whose job it is to help people find jobs. That’s right.  I found about this late last week. DWD is letting 60 people go in its Work One centers across the […]

Been “Butt Hurt” Lately?

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

It used to be that if you found something “offensive” you either complained to the appropriate individuals or kept it to yourself.   Now, with the internet and social media, we’re all butt hurt over every possible slight. Whether it’s the color of a cup of coffee at Starbucks or heaven forbid, someone may actually have […]

My Afternoons with Amos

Sunday, November 8th, 2015

The last thing I was expecting to hear Saturday afternoon when I picked up the phone was that my fellow Indy radio talk show host Amos Brown had died. Amos died of a  heart attack while visiting his family in Chicago.  Much of the Indianapolis community has offered its words of condolences and perspective on […]

With All the Power…

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

omes all the responsibility. Pardon my play on words from Peter Parker, but that is my sentiment now that Democrats have seized complete control of Indianapolis government for the first time nearly eight years. With Joe Hogsett as Mayor and the Democrats controlling the Council 13-12, they now have the opportunity to put their vision […]

Expect No Suprises on Election Day

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

If you’re expecting any surprises in Tuesday’s elections here in Indianapolis, forget about it.  No matter what happens, it will all make absolute perfect sense. Whether Joe Hogsett or Chuck Brewer becomes Mayor or whether Democrats or Republicans take control of the City-County Council, there is a perfect explanation for all of them. Allow me […]
