"The Easy Stories"

In most businesses there's the tendency to go for the low-hanging fruit instead of the hard stuff.

The Indianapolis Star is still covering the State Fair tragedy as front-page news instead of spending investigative resources on the stories that have more far-reaching consequence for many, many more central Indiana residents.

Advance Indiana, for example, spotlights this one: "At Monday night's council meeting, [Ryan] Vaughn [City-County Council President] announced that the council will no longer permit public comment on council appointees because he claimed people who voluntarily served on city boards and commissions were becoming difficult to find because of scrutiny they were receiving from some community activists."

The City-Council "will no longer permit public comment on council appointees"? Wait a minute! What?
