Regarding the Oct. 11 article, "Governor establishes planning committee," what a sad series of ironies that our governor "helped use a train locomotive to cut the ribbon on a new intermodal terminal in Indianapolis that's expected to help Hoosier businesses save money by bypassing Chicago-area shipping facilities to get their foreign-made goods faster."
Did he forget that he and "our man Mitch" strongly support the Illiana express-tollway construction to expressly benefit existing and future local intermodal facilities?
I believe the governor is not too crazy either about providing financial support for continuing Amtrak between Chicago and southeastern Indiana, but he uses a locomotive?
And, what about those foreign made goods? Aren't the never-ending tax cuts, tax credits and TIF gifts showered on Indiana businesses supposed to reduce all those imports?
Seems to me if you can't succeed in business in Indiana, you have no business being in business.
