Buy-1-get-6-free is nothing more than marketing to the mind set of those people who buy the fireworks. I’m shocked they don’t sell cigarettes that way too.

It is good to know the Indiana Democrats are not merely puppets of the chamber of commerce. I prefer an elected leader who listens to the constituents rather than the chamber. They are elected to represent the people not businesses.

“Lone Ranger” and “World War Z” were both money wasted to see.

Here’s a hint: If you are against gay marriage, don’t marry a gay person. That should solve your conundrum.

If it pains you to read rebellious comments in Quickly, then stop reading. This column is not here for your sole pleasure.

Indiana Department of Education, please start teaching my grandchildren instead of just testing them. America used to excel in our educational system.

I also got one of those new right-to-work jobs, but mine was in Hammond from a company that came from Rockford, Ill. I am also very grateful for the opportunities that brought these new good paying jobs to Indiana. I guess I need to thank the Republicans, but I am a Democrat at heart!

The ISTEP tests were a bust. Now, they can’t proceed any further because the results are skewed. A $95 million contract with McGraw-Hill is useless. They need to go back to paper-and-pencil tests.

I really like how Menards lists its products with “made in the USA” and state of origin in its ads.
