Venable's Indy Kiss-Off Gift

Lou Harry notes: "More than the resources, tech, and cost, what’s staggering and saddening about this is that an entire floor of an ART MUSEUM is being devoted to this sideshow, which is to art what an amusement park Laser Floyd show is to an actual Pink Floyd concert."

"The Mike Pence Saga"

Recovering Republican Sheila Kennedy has weighed in on the governor Hoosiers love to hate.

In a column July 1, 2021, she writes: Pence's " balancing act is unlikely to mollify either the crazies who form the base of today’s GOP or anyone who spent four years observing Mike Pence. (It’s especially unlikely to endear him to Indiana voters, who found his preference for pontificating over governing during the prior four years very tiring)."

"Pence never had the respect of anyone other than a few naive fundamentalists."
