I like ripping up official-looking documents, that popping sound when the needle hits the record, and victory dances. I love facts about outer space and… More »

Re: “Noblesville's racist toiletries

Thanks for your comments. I'm trying to find a way to delicately respond to comments that argue against points I didn't make. You seem to have interpreted my post as an argument against the existence of racism in American history? I don't think everyone in America is above using racist cartoons to sell products, I just think that they should be. There are enough racist artifacts of American history that actually existed for salesmen to replicate without them needing to make up their own-- you listed some of them yourself. There was no such thing as soap called "Kolored Kids" or anything like it; there's a difference between preserving history (i.e. something worth discussion like the Benson murals at IU) and exploiting a national disgrace for four bucks and a chuckle.

Re: “Pacers Bailout: Billionaire Herbert Simon to receive $33 million from city

or in this case...not what they pry from our "clinging hands," but what they snatch from a hapless CIB

Re: “Pacers Bailout: Billionaire Herbert Simon to receive $33 million from city

Thank you both for your comments!

I'm sure the Simons engage in their fair share of philanthropic endeavors; but I fear that the amount that they give back is pennies to the dollar compared to what they pry from our clinging hands.

Re: “RoboBlog: SPILL BABY SPILL

Thanks for your comment and for reading NUVO.

I'm sorry that you feel facts were exaggerated; if you'd like to point out something specific that was untrue I'd be happy to clarify or correct.

Regarding your first note, there were several politicians who initially spoke out against what they called a "shakedown" of BP; that's what I was referring to. I went out of my way to mention that it was a "small minority" of Republicans. If it helps I could track down the specific comments, but that reference was based on fact, not opinion.

To your second point, I never said that Pujols or any player was illegally residing in the U.S., so I'm not sure how to respond to that.

I'm also not sure what comments about racism you found to be ignorant; surely we can agree that controversial civil rights and race issues have been more prevalent in campaign ads than they have been for a long time, and that people like Rand Paul are getting away with it (he won his primary despite his comments about civil rights-- which is fact, not opinion). However, if you disagree with my opinion that this is evidence of deeper underlying issues and it needs to be opposed, you're certainly entitled to that opinion and I welcome those thoughts.

Thanks again for reading NUVO.

Re: “Indians' Alvarez called up to the show

I agree that it would be dumb to say that Alvarez is going to "bring in hype" like Strasburg. Which is the main reason that I didn't say that. At all. Anywhere.

Re: “Go Dawgs!: Butler in the Final Four

The fact should have included the addendum "in the last four decades." I misinterpreted a sentence in the pregame press release. They have now played each other 24 times with their last meeting prior to last week's game game being in 1971, before Brad Stevens was born; so the information's relevance to the matchup is still intact. The all-time record is Michigan State 13, Butler 11.
