One of Those Head-Slap Moments

Just when the City of Indianapolis is complaining that it can't afford more police, and Mayor Greg Ballard is trying to explain why snow removal, pot-hole repair and trash collection are in such dire straits -- the city decides to spend $1.5 million on behalf of Butler University to help the private institution in "distinguishing the college from the surrounding neighborhood".

Yes, folks, Butler wants a visual barrier between its ivy covered self and Butler Tarkington, and we taxpayers get to pay half of the cost.

This Indianapolis Observer is appalled at the city's spending priorities, once again.
