Hmmm, how ironic. I continually am "disappointed" that the Indianapolis Star employs "underperforming" political columnists who can't bring themselves to write about anything controversial that might put local politicians and powerful downtown players in a bad light. While the Star is relegated to the role of cheerleader for local power brokers, the Indianapolis Business Journal and local TV reporters do yeoman's work in detailing corruption and the pay-to-play politics that dominate Indianapolis.
Ironically, I was talking to a friend today who brought up the name of Dick Cady, the legendary Indianapolis Star investigative reporter and columnist who wasn't afraid to report on local politicians' wrongdoing. In the early 1970's, Cady helped the Star win a Pulitzer Prize with his work exposing corruption in the Indianapolis Police Department.
Matthew Tully is to Dick Cady as the 2012 Cubs are to the 1927 New York Yankees. I'm sorry ... that's not really fair to the Cubs. They are not that bad.
Where's the "like" button? The entire Indpls Star isn't even a shadow of its former self. I'll be the Pulliam's wouldn't use it to line their bird cages...
Paul--As a lifelong fan of the Chicago National League Baseball Club, I have to say yes the 2012 Cubs ARE that bad. Next year, however, we shall win the whole enchilada.
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!
The Star frequently starts his column on the front page as if his opinion is earth shattering news. I hope the new editor will find an appropriate place for the opinion in the obituaries section.
In jaundice journalism Pee One is preferred placement for leg lifting puppies pleasing masters.
No disagreement that Tully is an arrogant, sanctimonious hypocrite with delusions of adequacy, but he's right about the fireworks law.
Paul, your envy of Tully's relevance is unbecoming.
