The Perfect Storm

The topic dominating airwaves for weeks is a crescendo this week in Indianapolis. America's best city is hosting another Final Four, this time featuring bluebloods Duke & Kentucky, as well B1Gs: Wisconsin and Michigan State. As if the game needed any more attention, the NCAA (and others) have publicly denounced the RFRA bill signed into Indiana law last week. Legislation was forced to specify a Federal law with similar language after gays were denied cake at a local bakery.

The result of that legal battle that required clarification has rubbed many liberals the wrong way (rightfully so) but Mike Pence doesn't deserve to be called a bigot. Understanding the language of the bill is the first thing everyone should do before you go off criticizing all Hoosiers and boycott the entire state. Bill Clinton signed the Federal RFRA over 20 years ago, and Obama signed the Illinois RFRA as well. So why is the outrage directed only at Indiana? They hate us cuz they anus.

Before you throw a tantrum, keep this in mind: it can be used to defend oneself against lawsuits or administrative action. It can’t be used affirmatively to try and deprive others of the protections of law. By boycotting, you're essentially doing the same thing you're accusing the intolerant of doing - not conducting business with someone based on their (constitutionally protected) beliefs. Religious or not, everyone should follow the Golden Rule, respect karma and maintain inner peace.

Hyperbolic Obit for Hyperbolic Orbit

Did you see the lunar eclipse this morning? Did you see the one last month!? Do you even watch the sky, bro?? Comet Leonard [named after Colts All-Pro Darius Leonard] aka c/2021, the year's best & brightest, will make it's first and only appearance in the East before sunrise (between Big Dipper's handle & Arcturus) and then in the western sky after sunset starting on the 14th, looking towards the sun (ouch!)  I say "only" appearance because this happened 80,000 years ago but let's be honest they didn't have the tools we have now, and we're not yet positive this'll be visible to the unaided eye. But we do know it's hyperbolic orbit will soon fling the comet out of the Milky Way, and possibly into another solar system lightyears away.  RIP Comet Leonard 12/12/21 You're a Star (& comet)

64-team bracket BLANK

Go ahead and knock yourself out with this blank bracket, but I ( and Joe Lunardi ) find it more enjoyable setting the field before Sunday...

Fishers Medals Again

In the bustling Nickel Plate District of Fishers, Indiana, Tracy Gritters can recall a time when things looked very different. “It was a two-lane road 17 years ago,” she said of the property around her boutique store, Gallery 116 , where she has sold locally made goods since 2002. “We were worried about Target coming to town.” The retail giant eventually did — it's located about an 11-minute walk from her store — but the city's expansion hasn’t been the scenario she feared. Fishers, which was named MONEY's Best Place to Live in 2017 , officially upgraded from a town to a city and swore in its first mayor on January 1, 2015. Mayor Scott Faddness is still in office, and in the years since his inauguration, the city itself has been transformed. The newly developed downtown area became the Nickel Plate District , now home to an outdoor amphitheatre, plenty of retail stores and restaurants, a brewery, luxury apartments, and a high-speed internet coworking sp
