The Indiana Republicans just can’t get enough of trouncing on our public school system and the parents who stand by it. Once again, just to reinforce their love of anything non-public, Republicans gussied up the now-legal package of enticements to … Continue reading
Dismissing the argument that Charlie White should be allowed to slither out from under his felony convictions, a Hamilton County judge ordered White to serve one year on home detention providing White with an excellent opportunity to re-assess how he … Continue reading
