New NUVO on stands today - all about the backdrop of gun violence as the NRA rolls into town. Find a copy here.
Colbert was on Letterman. He's ready to take over.
The city passed on hosting BOTH Democratic and Republican Nation Conventions.
That doesn't mean the Dems aren't annoyed by the development. We received the following statement this morning:
Statement from Marion County Democratic Chairman on Ballard's refusal to submit a bid for the 2016 Democratic National Convention
INDIANAPOLIS - Below is a statement from Marion County Democratic Chair Joel Miller regarding Mayor Greg Ballard's refusal to submit a bid for the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
"Today's move by Mayor Ballard is shameful, disrespectful and blatantly political. Indianapolis was specifically invited by the Democratic National Committee to submit a bid to host a political convention that reaps financial rewards for the city and global exposure in a Presidential Election year. Next month, our city is holding one of the largest single-day sporting events in the world. We have hosted the Super Bowl and are in the running for another. We have hosted Final Four tournaments and major stock car races. The excuse that we don't have enough hotel space and private funding to attract a political convention is simply ludicrous.
Mayor Ballard was willing to ask 'Kate and William' - the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - to a cricket tournament at his boondoogle of a cricket stadium on the eastside. He is willing to host the NRA's convention later this week in Indianapolis. But, he is not willing to host Democrats, including the current President of the United States, in our city."
Okay, "single ladies," here's some hilarious late-1930s advice.
