I would like to respond to a muddled and misleading article last week.
Purdue is known for the pioneers and adventurers it produces, those whose sense of wonder has led them to frontiers of new knowledge, across our planet and beyond it. But even a Nobel Laureate or an astronaut could not surpass by much the curiosity of a newly minted college graduate: I wonde…
For years, our administration has sat silently through frequent criticism of our initial attempt to repair and reform Indiana's welfare system. Much of the criticism was sincere and accurate, much was simply crude politics. But even when it crossed the line into inaccuracy, we endured it wit…
I appreciate The Times offering me a fifth annual opportunity to write a special message about this special corner of Indiana in which the paper and its readers live. This is the only newspaper or place in the state where I prepare a particular New Year statement, but that's entirely appropriate.
