  1. Great meeting you and your wife at the Monon Coffee shop today in Broad Ripple. Always nice meeting new people who share in conspiring to take over the world. Hope the rest of your drive went well and that you avoided a new twilight zone.

    Safe travels from a stereotypical friendly Hoosier.

    Take care and keep drinking good coffee.

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
