If elected, I’m only serving a maximum of two terms. I’ve long written that pledge here and elsewhere, and believe it’s worth every candidate to take the same pledge. George Washington established the precedent for our nation’s executive, and most states have term limits on their governors for much of their histories. But local government […]
My dad wears work boots every day. He has worn work boots every day of his life, to my knowledge, with exception of “dress boots” for dressier events. He worked on a factory floor for 8-12 hours a day. We’d find ourselves in the shoe section at Wal-Mart frequently as they wore out. Like Homer […]
There’s a story in the Star about two of the three mayoral candidates’ plans about food insecurity and access. I’m optimistic enough to think food access isn’t some racist capitalist ploy. If Wal-Mart, which is closing a Neighborhood Market on the east side, can’t make money, no one should expect them to give stuff away. […]
Irvington Plaza is Irvington’s Louisiana Purchase. It’s huge, untapped, everyone wants it for something else, and I’m not sure we have the legal authority to do so without a serious ethical question.

There’s a reason the Pennsy Trail isn’t a thing yet, and the City’s running out of time before the money to build it expires. The problem is what gives capitalism a bad name.
Dumping people at a dead end with a sign that says “LOL” is about the biggest F-U I can think of from most construction projects in town. Right after they walk away with a multi-million dollar tax abatement.
Today in some of the stupidest things I’ve read in a while: buses will make us all burn alive in our homes and offices. From a FOX 59 story on the Red Line: “John Kniesly restated his ongoing request that IndyGo release the plan it has been developing with IMPD, IFD and IEMS for more […]
Every time I go knocking on doors I’m surprised at how many never get answered despite people obviously being home. They may have good reasons for it — like fear of me being an attacker. But that’s no way to live, either.
There’s nothing anyone can do this year or next about the condition of your roads. Sure, we might scrape together a few million here or there to patch a few spots here and there. That’s fine. But the sort of wholesale “let’s just fix everything” approach many people expect is not going to happen soon.
