Ehren Bingaman likes to tell a story about something that happened to him last winter. Bingaman, who happens to be executive director of the Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority, was driving his car on west Washington Street, near the old Central State hospital, when he hit a pothole that blew his tire and left him stranded by the side of the road. As is typical in situations involving potholes, cold weather, slush and disabled vehicles, a series of misadventures ensued.

A former editor of NUVO, I now reside in northern Indiana. My memoir about growing up in the suburbs, Midcentury Boy, is available from Amazon.
