That had the capacity to be a good article but it is limited in information and did not follow through with the results of McDaniel's actions or even the reactions of the people or the courts. A little bit of research would have provided a fuller account.

Perhaps you could help with that? I've been very busy since spring.

Thanks, the libe(R)topians are still quite busy in the various States and that's one of the worst.

One of the problems that I had with the article is the continuous repetition that this state was never mentioned in the media with it's ties to the Koch's. This is a state that ALEC had been at work at long before it became news worthy.

Yet, all of the items brought up did make news. Not 7 people shot by insane individual news but they did run. We cannot continuously remark about the media conglomerate and mainstream medias refusal to pick up stories and then act shocked when they don't. I cannot for the life of me understand why there is continuous shell shock when any section of the media does not air information that would (one way or the other) operate against it's own interests.

That said, the author is writing about a decentralized state. He may become so accustomed to it that he has forgotten the role that it plays in the news and transparency.

The IBM debacle, which I posted previously, was important because it had failed in several states prior to them being involved in that state. Daniels then sued to have his name removed from law suit thus leaving the tax payers on the hook.

Daniels appointed 8 of the 10 Purdue trustees and was then elected president.

Bennett is in the process of making a deal. This is huge because the question is not the actual reform or ethics. No information is covered in the article of the privatization of the public education system by KNOWN failing charter school programs or the real estate scandals or the amount of money in testing.

There is a lot of information out there. It's been in the news.

Further, we had a guy that had posted here that had stated that it was the Democrats that had not wanted to protest R2W. He had gone down to Indianapolis from another state.
