Jan 28. I see the JT has a front page photo of a Monument Square war protest rally. No surprise there, but why must they send a photographer to the rally. Is the scene really any different from the other rallies? Stock footage ought to do.
Jan 29. Food section. There is an article, with pictures, of a black man who opened a restaurant downtown. An anonymous blogger has previously declared that our two business organizations downtown are essentially whites only organizations. Any thoughts anon?
Jan 31. Socking it to car rental companies to fund commuter rail is not only unfair but it will have unintended consequences. My guess is that some of these companies will not survive this new tax, and fewer people will rent cars, so the anticipated revenue will gradually decline. But taxing others for what you want is a tried and true method for getting a tax increase.
Feb 1. The JT endorsed a statewide indoor public smoking ban. I am shocked shocked shocked!
Today. I see a local judge has been arrested for DUI. He intends to plead guilty, he says, because he is guilty. What a refreshing attitude! I wish him well.
