Today's Opinions

  • What are your kids saying?

    It's easy for people like me without children to preach to people with kids. I do that sometimes with my siblings, all married with children. I complain about nephews who are far too young to talk like sailors and who seem to think they're smarter than their parents, or their uncle.

  • As Labor Day nears, nation must commit itself to workers' rights

    This Labor Day, we must commit ourselves to standing up for living wage jobs in this country. After 53 years in Evansville, Whirlpool announced it is moving to Mexico. 

  • Science fiction done right

    "District 9," the part faux documentary, part straight up sci-fi film, is one of the most enjoyable, compelling, thought-provoking films of the year. This is what great science fiction films are all about. There are amazing visuals, the action is brutal and impressive, and there are mirrors held up to humanity.

  • Energy-saving stimulus money better late than never

    "We're eager to get going," Gov. Mitch Daniels said in a news release Thursday, referring to the imminent arrival of federal stimulus money that will help people improve their homes' energy efficiency.

    "Our goal is to lower utility costs for as many people as possible as quickly as possible, putting a dent in Indiana's overall energy consumption along the way."

  • Offenders support recovery house

    My name is Danny R. Bolin. I am an inmate at Branchville Correctional Facility and I am writing this letter on behalf of myself, Paul James and Shawn Kahler, who are housed in a therapeutic community program dorm for treatment of alcoholics, drug addictions and criminal behaviors.

    It has been a great blessing to all three of us and others to have had the opportunity to participate in a treatment program such as this one.

  • Tarantino's latest film upholds 'glourious' form

    "Inglourious Basterds," the latest from Quentin Tarantino, is exactly what you would expect from the director of "Kill Bill" and "Pulp Fiction." The stylish World War II Nazi-hunting movie is tense, violent, slow-burning, hilarious, and jaw-dropping.

    While this might be what a Tarantino fan would always expect, it's not necessarily the film that the previews promised. I've noticed more and more lately that ads for movies either give everything away, or are cut in such a way that they seem to be showcasing completely different films.

  • Schools should allow students to participate in more extracurricular activities

    Tell City, like most small-town communities, takes pride in its high-school sports teams and marching band.

  • No cash for my clunker

    I didn't give much serious thought this summer to trading in my old car for a new one, but I did nose around the government's Cash for Clunkers Program that made so much news this summer.
