Pence expressed his reluctance, not openness

Was the editorial "Pence's openness to tackling Gary's problem is refreshing" written by the same editorial writer as the one who recently wrote he was basically duped by Tony Bennett on his marvelous "educational reform," which is now appearing to be just what many of us believed from the beginning: A way for GOP donors to rip off public schools that "failed" and provide a means to those donors to make personal profits by installing private enterprise in its place?

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence thumbed his nose at Gary's request for more cops during a crisis, and you find that refreshing? For heaven's sake, people are being killed and daily placed in real fear!

Please quit being such a lap dog press for whatever this increasingly reactionary Legislature and statehouse wants to do with our Northwest Indiana assets (public school buildings, major bridges, toll road, local neighborhoods' safety, etc.).
