Indy’s leaders seem to refuse to be realistic with residents about the state of infrastructure. Canvassing a couple of weeks ago I talked to some people at their homes and they were willing to recognize the following as we talked.
Our policy debates have repeated throughout history. There has never been a time in Indianapolis’ history where people haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about public safety and schools. It’s good that we heap a lot of attention to those problems. It’s good that we continually examine and question their efficiency and service.
If you ever take a tour of Indianapolis Animal Care’s facility on the southwest side, they’ll show you a room in the back corner of the building. The room is located down the hall from the adoptable dogs, near a bathroom and a fire exit. It was built to be a euthanasia room.
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 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 […]
