Re: “Zoeller joins in GOP fight for 9th district seat

Seems the "federal" virus in the GOP is a little fuzzy. Oops, wrong Zoeller.

Re: “Indiana still right-to-work despite court ruling

"I'don't like it and my word is law". Mike Pence, a "Legend in His Own Mind". The right to low wages and few benefits lives on!

Re: “Judge to gay Hoosiers: You can go home again

It took a judge to throw out this horrible ban on equality and happiness for all. Indianapolis is already "gay friendly" and watch the talent and money come home. This is a win for Indiana and "a smack upside the head" of those bible thumpers who would imposes their wishes upon others.

Re: “The fight over coal continues

The only thing "devastating" to Indiana's economy is myopic morons like Pence and his GOP cohorts. Global warming is here, pollution kills as well. Pence conveniently forgets when his party stood for something besides "Three Card Monte". Richard Nixon started the EPA

Re: “Lawmakers pass Central Indiana transit bill

Typical mopic legislature. Rail is mass transit. All else stops at red lights.

Re: “Indy versus Indiana

So true, David and it's always been that way. Indianapolis is too liberal, has too many blacks, latinos, gays and whatever so it scares the hell out of these good, bible toting Christians who can't see beyond their noses that God's children come in many varieties.

There was a movie years ago that said it all. Two guys on a trip stopped and got out of the car and said to his buddy something to the effect of breath that air, see those tilled fields, see the salt of the earth etc. and the other one said "Yeah, morons"!

Re: “Weighing the Fate of Amtrak's Hoosier State

Firstly, Megabus pays the same through fuel taxes as everyone else does. Indiana actually funds roads with a majority funds from sources than the gas tax and fees. Only 28% of the cost of building and maintaining Indiana roads comes from the gas tax and fees.

Secondly, in 1941, the "James Whitcomb Riley" made the trip in 3 hours 3 minutes. With track upgrading to 110 mph and returning the train to its original route through Lebanon and Kankakee it would be a lot more attractive.

Finally, the choice is up to Indiana. Illinois is upgrading the line between Chicago and St. Louis for 110 mph running and so is Michigan between Pontiac and Chicago. It doesn't take rocket science to see that a Cincinnati/Louisville-Chicago fairly high speed service through Indiana would make travel a lot easier and more productive.
