The Super Bowl Host Committee is looking for a few good volunteers.All I can say to the Super Bowl Host Committee is, "FUCK YOU!" You folks better pay and pay good. For anyone thinking of responding to their request: Doing "volunteer" work that is of any benefit for the millionaire/billionaire club that is the NFL is just stupid. Go ahead and be a Useful Idiot for the Super Bowl Host Committee if you want. Myself, I hope they eat shit and die.
Organizers are lookin [sic] for Indy residents 18 and older who want to volunteer to work the week of the big game as part of the recycling collection team. Others are needed to assist with the "NFL Fan Experience."
The suspect, Harold Glen Rodman, 52, allegedly was wearing his uniform and displayed a badge to the victim, a 37-year-old woman.Takin' his work home with him.
Police arrested Rodman on Nov. 20. He is charged with aggravated sexual battery, object sexual penetration, forcible sodomy and abduction with intent to defile.
Simon Property Group Inc. has filed suit against the Indiana Department of Revenue in an attempt to force the state to collect sales taxes from Amazon.com Inc.Now, this is the same Simon Property Group, owners of the Pacers, that:
The Indianapolis-based mall powerhouse said it filed the suit Thursday not to collect "monetary damages" but to level the playing field for Indiana's brick-and-mortar retailers including the tenants at its 27 Indiana shopping centers.
A man and a woman were arrested Sunday on child neglect and drug possession charges after police said they admitted driving in circles on Indianapolis' west side while smoking marijuana.And immediately had this song going through my head:
A customer standing in line at a west side Indianapolis auto parts store shot a suspected armed robber demanding cash, police said.That's heartening. And the police response? Something like, "Yes, we are seldom able to make it to a robbery in progress so we appreciate the fact that citizens can legally defend themselves." Oh no. It's the usual:
"This is a rare occurrence, and I would encourage anyone who finds themselves in a position where a robbery may be occurring to actually comply with what the suspect is asking for. This is not typical. However, in this particular situation, it seems to have worked out for everyone involved,” [Indianapolis metro police spokeswoman Catherine] Cummings said.So Ms. Cummings, if I should find myself in a more common occurrence and I'm armed I should still let the robbers herd me and the others into a back room where we'll likely be told to kneel and executed with a shot in the back of the head? And this will help the situation how?
"Move In with Grandma - Not your grandma, necessarily, but possibly somebody's grandma. When you're looking for a roommate, you should consider some unconventional options like the elderly or any assisted living situation. . .Just try to steer clear of living situations that expect a sexual component, as these ads aren't always obvious and can be misleading."So I sent it to a buddy at work. He doubled the ante by sending back this very apropos clip. Now I'm totally creeped out. And a little urpy, too.
"As the climate warms up and ice melts, many shipping companies are eyeing the Northern Sea Route as a way to cut voyage times and costs in the future.So they're hoping for the ice to melt so they'll have a Northwest Passage to sail in order to save money by saving fuel. And lowering their carbon footprint. But isn't this what the Warmies want? But they're going to do it to save money, not the planet. But they're still. . .Ohhhh, my head hurts.
The trip to China via the Northern route is 30 percent shorter, and requires 1,000 tonnes less fuel."
Hoosiers gathered at a rally Tuesday in a hope to save the U.S. Postal Service and keep 120,000 people from losing their jobs.This doesn't tell me much. It does tell me that it was at the Julia Carson Center* and that it was a rally to draw attention to Democrat legislation. But it doesn't tell me how few people were there. Wanna guess why?
The demonstration was held downtown at the Julia Carson* Center.
USPS is set to announce $10 billion in losses when the current fiscal year ends at midnight Friday.
Ralliers said they hope to draw attention to Democratic-backed legislation that could help solve the financial crisis.
SWA later tweeted this statement, which did not mention Hailey by name: "Initial reports indicate that we received several passenger complaints characterizing the behavior as excessive.Shit, I'd consider that in-flight entertainment.
Indiana Black Expo and Indianapolis police plan a dramatic show of force this weekend for Summer Celebration downtown.It's good practice for the police so they can prepare for the massive show of force necessary to keep the peace at the White Expo, AKA the Indiana State Fair. . . What, there's no need for such a police presence at the Fair? I smell me some racism. I think the police should back off and stay out of the downtown and not hassle folks attending the Black Expo.
Police and expo officials outlined safety and security plans as they try to avoid a repeat of last year's event, where several people were shot.
The Guardian reports on new research revealing that the huge increase in coal-fired power stations in China, up from just over 10 gigawatts (GW) in 2002 to over 80GW in 2006. . .And this increase is pumping out shit-tons of carbon but the global warming effects of that are being blocked by the shit-tons of sulphur emissions. OK, even if I accept that, then why the fuck does Obama and his EPA want Cap and Trade here when the real problem is the phenomenal increase in the pollution pumped out by the Chinese? Hmmm?

Of that $15 million, the City of Indianapolis is paying $6.35 million, or approximately 42%. But will the garage really cost $15 million to construct?

A woman was arrested on Indianapolis' east side Thursday evening after she lifted her skirt and smacked her bare bottom in an attempt to incite a fight. . .I apparently speak a different language. That sort of action would not provoke a fight where I come from: It would be seen more like a friendly invitation. . .
04/12/11, 0840 - 0910Evidence of the murder of a donut. I wonder if the officer tasted it to verify the source? :p

"The XREP (eXtended Range Electronic Projectile) is a wireless shock round weighing 25 grams with a velocity of 270 ft. per second and a range of 100 feet and can also be fired from any pump-action shotgun."And what really gets me excited:
"Taser is now working on a grenade version for the Department of Defense that will be capable of launching up to 200 feet. . ."
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis police confirmed they are investigating claims an officer may have been drinking and driving.I like it. Tricky way of getting most of the cops nervous and to think about toeing the line.
Few details were released Friday about the allegations and the officer under investigation.
“IMPD Professional Standards Division is currently conducting an internal investigation regarding an incident involving an officer and an allegation of impaired driving,” department spokesman Sgt. Paul Thompson said in a statement.
Thompson would not confirm the officer's name or give details as to when the alleged incident may have taken place.
