  • Did Rokita issue statement just to win voters?

    Far be it from us to suggest he can't express his opinions, but we suspect the Indiana secretary of state is using his official position in ways that may cross the lines of what's proper.

    Secretary of State Todd Rokita issued a statement March 4 regarding the lawsuit filed against him by the League of Women Voters of Indiana alleging the state's voter-identification law treats voters differently, and therefore unequally and unconstitutionally. Attorneys for the League and the state had presented oral arguments before the Indiana Supreme Court that morning.

  • Thanks for running that stop sign, deputy

    To the sheriff's deputy who blew through the four-way stop at 19th and Mozart streets at 1:09 p.m. Thursday, thank you.

    I might have recognized you, and therefore thanked you by name, but you had your hand up to your face, perhaps holding a cell phone.

    I want to thank you because a law-enforcement officer blowing the stop sign gives credence to my theory that people going through that intersection driving north or south are different from those of us going east or west.
