Super Bowl Dumbassery

We've been having a rash of accidents near where I work the last few days. This is Michigan Street looking west through the West Street intersection along the "Super" route for the Super Bowl yesterday afternoon. As of this morning it's been fixed.

Interesting test. I failed miserably.

Practice Test

Our local officials are in a hurry to say they're ready:

Indianapolis Says It Passed Super Bowl Snow Test

Sorry, boys. If an inch and a half of blowing snow "challenged road crews," you're fucked. I grew up in Michigan, went to grad school in Wisconsin, and lived in the hills of Pennsyltucky for five years. I've seen snow. This was a dusting. Keep hoping.

Civil Rights on State-funded University Campuses

Late last year I was part of a group that met with Indiana State Senator Jim Banks to discuss his sponsoring a bill that would prohibit universities that receive state money from taking away our constitutional right to carry a firearm on campus. Being busy, I hadn't keep track of any progress of this until running across the Indiana University Statehouse Report today and seeing:
SB 181 Possession of Firearms on State Property: The bill prohibits a state agency, including a state supported college or university, from regulating the possession or transportation of firearms on land or in buildings that it owns or leases.
While I'm sure my employer's undies are in a bundle, I'm pleased to see that this may go forward.
