Quip: Please, no more Bushes, Clin­tons, or Oba­mas in the White House. Re­tort: It could be worse. Cruz, Pence, Jin­dal, Ru­bio and down­hill from there.

Our de­cay­ing in­fra­struc­ture, most vis­i­ble as enor­mous pot­holes ev­ery­where, makes this state look like the East Ger­many I vis­ited in col­lege in the ’70s.

Since min­i­mum wage jobs are sup­pose to be en­try-level jobs, pro­vid­ing young peo­ple crit­i­cal skills, I have a sug­ges­tion: Let’s lower the min­i­mum wage and give more kids the op­por­tu­nity to work a first job.

The most common de­fense from pit bull lovers is, “It’s not the pit bull, it’s how they’re raised.” My ques­tion is, then why are pit bulls the only ones killing other an­i­mals and peo­ple? Are pit bulls the only breed not be­ing raised cor­rectly?

More school fundrais­ers, tax ref­er­en­dums, fees for par­ents and still less cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties and a worse ed­u­ca­tion over­all. Yep, that sur­plus comes at a cost.

Hey, foot­ball guru: Up­per man­age­ment is sup­posed to hire peo­ple who do the job. Play­ers or coaches, makes no dif­fer­ence.

If kids are not raised with a loving, nur­tur­ing foun­da­tion with fair pun­ish­ment for their ac­tions, it’s no won­der they spi­ral out of con­trol. Ev­ery­one needs bound­aries.

Whit­ing and its mayor should take a bow for what they have done to the lake­front. Great things can hap­pen when your first pri­or­ity is your city.

I wish those do­ing the chronic whin­ing about the In­di­ana bud­get sur­plus would please do us all a fa­vor and move one state west where there al­ways will be a bud­get deficit.
