Sunday Roundup

Sundays have become round up days around here which is just as well. The cattle have to be brought in sometime.

Revamp Indiana Week in Review? Over at Advance Indiana, there's a spirited discussion brewing around whether or not Jim Shella and this team at Indiana Week in Review need to updated. I like the show, but have to agree the same faces are getting tired. Even though I love Mike McDaniels, he could be replaced for someone who projects a little less of the "party boss" image. Ann Delaney stars as the Dem we all love to hate and there is a revolving cast of guest starts each week. (But please, no Matt Tully.)

Drink more! Hoosierplew notes that Indiana lags behind in one more area. According to the latest Forbes report, Indianapolis is the 30th drunken city in the US. You won't run into to me at Drinking Liberally -- it's not really my thing. (The liberal thing not the drinking thing.)

Still Fighting the Good Fight -- D-7: RiShawn Biddle is doing some of my favorite writing right now on the Black political issues in the city with a backdrop of the Dickerson/Carson election. It's no secret that I want Carson out. I voted for Dickerson in the primary and will vote for him again in the fall, but I'm afraid it's not going to do any good. Her loyal base is so culturally entrenched, I don't think anything will shake her loose. No matter how good Dickerson is, he's not Julia who has been taking the black representation to Congress for a long time. No matter that she's kooky, ill, ineffective, often absent, often incoherent, and a part of today's problem -- the black political machine in Indiana.

Come on down to the Labor day parade today. Compare the support Carson turns out and Dickerson. I think you will be pleasently suprised.

You mean he'll actually show? Because he rolled a meet-and-greet on Weds. Potentially a bad sign. (And sorry, no can do on the Labor Day parade -- have to go engage in elitest snobbery at Geist.)

Which event was that ?

The only thing I see on his calendar was a meet and greet on the circle on the 30th and nothing the Wed before that ?

Eric was at the Labor Day parade - he had 20+ volunteers there and walked and talked to the crowd the entire route - Julia had 4-6 volunteers with her and never got out of her car to meet and greet the crowd.

re: Dickerson meet and greet. Might want to talk to RiShawn Biddle about the event he set up 8/30.
