Opinion: Delph took it over the line
State Sen. Mike Delph, R-Carmel, in our opinion, went a bit too far in defending his stand on gay marriage and the bill opposing it in the Indiana General Assembly. Certainly, he is entitled to his opinion, and just as certainly he is free to express it on Twitter (which he did, voluminously, a couple weeks ago), but the interaction with other “twits” – as users of the platform are called, and not in a derogatory manner – went over the line a few times. In one post, he said a respondent needed to have his “ass kicked.” That’s not taking it to the leftists and socialists, senator. That’s crossing the line of what we expect from our elected officials. Keep it classy, or don’t hit send.

Inside today’s paper you’ll find our annual Summer Camps guide. We sincerely hope it will be of good use to you. Attendant to that is Current Kids’ Day at the Center for the Performing Arts on March 1. It will be a family centric day loaded with activities and performances, some fee-based, others free. We urge you to attend and visit with a number of exhibitors you’ll find in the lobbies of the Palladium and the Booth Tarkington Theatre. For more information, please visit www.thecenterpresents.org.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie last week conducted his 100th town meeting. Some governors don’t have one in four years. Now, before you go thinking it’s all about the 2016 campaign, think again. He has brought about REAL change (as a Republican, no less!) in a state that previously had shown a certain restraint for such. He says he cares, and he shows he cares. Maybe he actually will be the one to sideswipe Hillary Clinton and gain the presidency.
