Simon says. It's bad enough that any building is going up on the pretty Capital Commons green space just north of the Statehouse. But it gets worse. The city is allowing Simon Property Group - a rich company that needs no more corporate welfare - to use the very valuable property for free and receive nearly $20 million in public incentives.
Charitable cleanup. In one of many unique traditions associated with the Indy 500, local organizations earn money for their groups by working to clean up tons of trash at the Speedway. It takes guts to pick up what's left behind - especially after a rainy, muddy weekend - all in the name of charity.
Bass ackward. People in Indianapolis don't get to see the Indianapolis 500 in real time on TV, but ... we DO get to see the terminally tedious Awards Banquet on Channel 8, in which a seemingly endless string of woozily dressed, semi-articulate drivers are handed big checks to the strains of pre-recorded movie themes while their babulous escorts smile raptly.
