  • Justice Anthony Kennedy’s contempt

    Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has contempt for a swath of his fellow citizens.

    If you disagree with him about gay marriage, indeed, if you merely think the federal government should continue to define marriage the traditional way while the states define it however they want, then you are a bigot. Your views deserve no political representation.

  • Serena Williams’ comments need further review

    There is a difference between blaming the victim and exhorting someone to use some common sense to avoid becoming a victim.

    But it seems hardly anyone in our ultra-sensitive, ultra-politically correct world is able or willing to accept that difference.

  • A marriage fight brews back home again …

    At our state’s signature annual event — the Indianapolis 500 — where we present ourselves to a worldwide audience, the actor Jim Nabors sings the words that are so dear to many of us: “Back home again, in Indiana …” 

    The irony here is that Nabors is not only gay, but last January he and his longtime partner, Stan Cadwallader, traveled to Seattle where they tied the knot. Here in Indiana, they would have few legal rights afforded traditionally married couples.

  • Another government bombshell

    News reports from the past month reveal a chasm between Americans’ perception of their freedom and their actual freedom.

    To those who thought the rule of law still protected them, the IRS targeting conservative groups for special scrutiny and Justice Department monitoring journalists’ phone records should have been enough to disabuse them of that notion.

  • The Cincinnati lie

    The Internal Revenue Service hadn’t spoken four sentences about its targeting of conservative groups before it blamed “our line people in Cincinnati.”

    Those were the words of Director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner on May 10, when she acknowledged the misconduct in an answer to a question at an American Bar Association conference. In a session with reporters later that day, she famously admitted that she is not good at math. It turns out that she is not good at geography, either.

  • Mowing is already getting old

    We’ve reached another of the year’s milestones — June, the month where mowing the lawn changes from a pleasant springtime chore into an onerous summer task.

  • Letter to the Editor June 19, 2013

    I am concerned about the proposed  Brownsburg North Annexation of 4,500 acres of land. I have attended public meetings related to this proposal and I, along with hundreds of others, are opposed to it. This proposal is going to have a huge impact on all involved.

  • The face of Facebook is changing

    Sometimes I’m so cutting edge I scare myself. So ahead of the curve. So next year.

    I’ve read recently in major national magazines and metropolitan newspapers that young people are getting bored with Facebook — almost as bored as they are with e-mail. And I think to myself that maybe there is something to this AARP fantasy that “Sixty is the new thirty.”

  • Letter to the Editor June 18, 2013

    Will the current V.A. backlog on veterans’ compensation claims be the next scandal to hit the administration?

    Currently, the backlog is at 865,000 plus compensation claims with a wait time of greater than 125 days.

  • ‘Free Kate’ campaign misdirected

    Apparently, it is not enough to tolerate, accept, or even endorse the gay agenda. Now, unless you tolerate and accept criminal behavior committed by gays, you are a hater.

    Believe it — that is the very public argument being made in behalf of Florida high school cheerleader Kaitlyn Hunt, 18, who faces criminal charges for having sex with a 14-year-old girl.
