Re: “CVS dumps tobacco: the change is cultural

Umm might take that CVS health thing more seriously if they did in fact drop liquor and the candy.
It just looks like they are trying to be politically correct right now. And most likely just made this move to be more attractive to the insurance companies. It's just a image gimmick.

Re: “One family's transgender journey

I need to say this about Deuteronomy 22:5:
I am a transgendered woman, What that means is that anatomically I was tagged as male out of the womb. Later to find out, that I was not a male but female. How that is measured is not the issue, but I will say that there are many varieties of physical anomalies that can cause error in deciding the "sex" of an individual.
So as I grew older it became obvious to me that I was female.
How would I view that scripture?
For a time I viewed that harshly and criticized myself for feeling that I needed to present myself in the fashion of a woman.
I started to do some research and became convinced that this is not a nurtured situation but something of nature. I through life investigation learned of people who were born with physical anomalies that could be attributed to both "sexes". How would that scripture apply to those individuals?
Not so black and white is it?
We could explore this in some detail, however that is not the intent here.
To answer, I would imagine that god would look at that individual and determine, based on there understanding of there own gender what "clothing" they should wear.
You see, personally, I know that I am a woman, so for me i would be violating the principle in Deuteronomy 22:5 if i wore the clothing socially acceptable as male clothing.
As a matter of fact this scripture convinced me that i couldn't continue to dress expressively as a man because I would be lying to god. And in the religion I am associated with I had to give up taking the lead and other responsibilities because of defined roles that are spelled out in the bible. Not to argue that here. I don't mind.
I for once feel right about my role and frankly know that God knows who I am, a woman.
So for those who throw out a scripture and expect that somehow that can straighten it all up for the rest of us, please give a little credit, we who are actually bearing the load of the disobedience of our ancestors, Adam and Eve, and I refer to the inherited imperfection that they gave us, have spent continual energy meditating on what will please our wonderful creator. And have studied and thought through the history and intent of our lord when he gave us these principles.

Re: “Former Hyatt security guards allege wage theft

Whatever happened to the lawsuit against C.G. Security Services, Inc. I know that they lost their contract with the Hyatt or it was not renewed. Did the Hyatt get any answers from the owner about why they were paying workers $8.00 hrly instead of the $16.00 as it was written in the contract?

Re: “How marriage inequality has hurt us all

Bravo, Mr. Carpenter! Missing only is your condemnation, eloquently and irrefutably stated by Judge Posner, of the "savage" discrimination enthusiastically promoted by religious (and other) zealots, whose "hateful discrimination" (again, Judge Posner's words) and culpable ignorance perpetrated this scourge.

Jerry- You're in radio. Pull the ratings. The only thing going up down there is the age of the listener. Charlie Morgan can only mask his pig so long. The real sadness is that Jeff doesn't seem to care anymore.

Re: “Farewell, Steve Simpson

Jason: had you read beyond your stall point and NOT taken the quote out of context:

"BUT (my caps added) there are times when ratings and revenue aren’t the only two metrics that matter for a supposed conveyor of information. ...

And now when the sky turns dark, planes are flown into buildings, corruption visits the state house, and elections change the city, state, and world, Steve Simpson will no longer be here to tell us about it."

Ratings and revenue matter not a whit when the above transpire. Trust in the Fourth Estate is a dying concept, and broadcasting to a niche audience hastens it.

Re: “Free textbooks? Not likely

This is a 'win-win', but she has waited too long to bring it to the spotlight. This has been lingering in the Statehouse for YEARS. Even when the Democrats had control, and had the governor's chair, they didn't pursue it. This is an issue that SHOULD be on the front burner. The GOP would go along with it, IF Glenda wasn't going to be around only for one term. Plus, she's too much on the shrill side.

Re: “Farewell, Steve Simpson

The problem with WIBC is that they are not hiring quality people throughout the day. Garrison? Are you kidding me? Simpson made him look like a rookie. The Chicks on the Right? Gimmick Radio. Until they are willing to spend the money and hire the staff, WIBC won't get back to #1.

I love talk radio, but with Steve Simpson gone, I am done with WIBC. (Not that I listened to anyone else recently) They have eliminated the last voice of reason on their station.

Re: “Ferguson and divisions, large and small

Here is an idea. Have criminals quit committing crimes like robbery, carjacking, home invasion,
theft, vandalism and then maybe there will be the return of residential communities. Unless
of course you are blaming crime on the people who don't want to be victims of crime.
Get real. The government seems unable to control the criminal element and thus the 'gated
communities'. It is happening in Brazil and anywhere the local government can't seem to
get a grip on reducing crime. Usually lemming liberals like Krull lament the decline of communities but
fail to mention liberal policies like high rise ghettos of public housing that have failed. Like Pruit-Igoe. Look
in the mirror Krull and see the problem first hand.

Simpson deserves better than Indianapolis, and WIBC in particular, anyway. Good for him. Oh, and I looked up "diatribe" just to be sure. It applies.

Re: “Farewell, Steve Simpson

Stever is a GREAT DUDE, great dude, but I stopped reading this post and started laughing at "ratings and revenue aren’t the only two metrics that matter." Let's be big boys here. Let's live in the real world. That's all it EVER is about. Especially in radio. I wish Stever the best, but WIBC is going to be just fine moving forward. You don't have to be bitter toward someone to wish someone else good luck. (And yes, this came off bitter.)

Re: “I Think We Can … Reduce Carbon Pollution

This whole "carbon reduction plan" is based on a false premise - that the air is dirty. The air is 67% cleaner than it was in 1980. Asthma has been increasing as the air has gotten cleaner, so it's obviously not related.
CO2 is not a pollutant. Life on earth cannot exist without it.
All of this EPA nonsense is BS designed to crush the economy.

Re: “Farewell, Steve Simpson

Kent, you failed. You reveal more and more your own biases with every paragraph of your article. By the way, why is conservative talk labeled a diatribe? Do you also use pejorative terms to describe the screeching rants of liberals? Listen, radio and electronic media in general is not what it used to be. There is no middle ground. Instead, you pick a side and work it. And, if the overwhelming and ongoing success of Fox News Channel is an indicator, WIBC may be on its way to further ratings success.

Re: “Farewell, Steve Simpson

This was the final straw for me with WIBC.
I'm not what you would call a liberal or a conservative. Political talk has its place, but hour after hour of forced political audio screed makes my ears bleed.
I am a young Gen Xer and a rabid fan of AM radio -- the big talkers. I grew up with the 50,000 watt blow torch KDKA 1020. On a clear night, I can pick its static-filled signal and instantly I'm home.
When I travel anywhere, the first thing I look for is the local talker KMOX, WGN, WLW, WSB etc. Indy's media landscape suffered the loss of any sort of daily newspaper years ago, and with the effective death of WIBC; it's sad to see the state of media in this "world class city."
My hope is someone, with much deeper pockets than I, will recognize the gap in the market and we will again, someday, have a news talker in Indy. Unfortunately, Steve Simpson ain't coming back. He's in a much, much better place.
For a "world class" city it's incomprehensible that I have nowhere to go for the latest local news.
Until then, it's NPR and Sirius. Fare thee well Stever!

Re: “I Think We Can … Reduce Carbon Pollution

Hi Jodi,
I think you are missing the point here: behind the rhetoric your governor, your local business leaders really don't want cleaner air, really don't want us to be healthier or live longer, unless that is they can make a buck of of it...ha! Yes, they want us to be workers; read: making them money, but living healthier lives is not part of that equation. To them we're just replaceable cogs in their various profit making systems, to be used, used-up then replaced by the next generation of cogs (our children). Wake-up.

Let me ad one more childhood story to your comparison: Pollyanna. You seem to keep wanting to find "good" in your characterization of the governor and business leaders...how I fervently want/wish that were so...and yes, here and there there are exceptions, especially at local level, small businesses; however, your governor, all governors, cater to big business, are addicted to their financial and political support for their own political careers' success. Governors only pander to the public in this sick capitalism-on-steroids political system that my country has become infected with...the world has become infested with.

It is a sordid, sad state I find my species in. IMHO, there's just too many of us now. Plato saw this way back when. Now it's much, much worse. Stanford University did an experiment with lab rats some years ago giving a small group of them a very large, self-contained, ideal environment to live in with plenty of food, water, and space. Without increasing the food, the water or space the researchers watched as the rat population grew to see how their community faired. At first everything went well, there was ample room, ample food and water...there was even cooperation between evolving groups for finding food, and water, at first. But as the population grew, and their food and water sources didn't, competition began replacing cooperation...which quickly led to "warfare" between competing groups. Even cannibalism became common as weaker groups were more aggressively dominated by stronger groups. The whole experiment showed that without common-cause organization inherent greed and competitive drives will tear apart social structures, along with massive degradation of resources. All this can be directly applied to human nature as well...you are experiencing it yourself as you attempt to bring into play a local version of common-cause values to your interactions with the governor and business interests.

There is no quick fix here. We have bred ourselves into the predicament we now find ourselves in. As the comic book character Pogo once, so very succinctly, said, "We have met the enemy, and he is us." Encourage, against the wind so to speak, our population be brought down. Link with others to find what would be an honest "sustainable" human population...one that is small enough to keep-up all our high-tech, high quality of living, for everyone, while at the same time giving room for healthy, sustainable populations of everything else on Earth, too, otherwise we are just another lab rat experiment going wrong'er and wrong'er...IMHO.
