Sanders Arrested in Protest

The Indy Student blog covered the Unite Here! protest at the downtown Hyatt Regency. The blog reports that City-County Council Minority Leader Joanne Sanders and 40 others were arrested at the protest. The protesters were standing up for the rights of hotel workers to unionize.

Indianapolis has no union hotels downtown.

Have you noticed that no one reads your blog. Your socialist agenda is jumping the shark

Nah. I had not noticed that. I've had over 58,000 hits since I signed up with site meter last fall, and 299 yesterday.

Thanks for your input, and your readership though.

If you would be so kind to leave me your e-mail, I would be happy to forward you a copy of the site meter report. Of course, I think folks like you are more into the hit and run variety of comment.

It takes all kinds of nuts to make a fruitcake!

I don't always agree with what you say, but I think you articulate yourself well. You're a liberal whacko at times, but not a socialist.

Thanks...I think! Paul, you do a great job on your blog. Thanks for keeping me honest here, too, and thanks also for your readership.
