OGDEN ON POLITICS: Get over there and read!

Paul Ogden is busy at work. Today he asks why we aren't using the gladitorium's retractable roof for which will will likely never pay off.

Right on target he declares it is time for the city council to investigate public private partnerships. I have a feeling what will be found is insider dealings that make Monroe Gray look like a choir boy.

Finally, and this is the most sickening of all, he writes that Mayor Ballard sided with the Sports Corporation against the people on the selling of the Pan Am Plaza to Peterson crony Kite Development. It looks like Ballard is gunning for the money to go for sports rather than the massive budget shortfalls and debts of the taxpayers. Ogden says he has not given up on the Mayor and believes that he's being bamboozled by Bob Grand and Joe Loftus at Barnes & Thornburg. Grand and Loftus were quick to surround and insulate Ballard. They were his escorts to meet President Bush in New Albany right after the election and had his ear the entire trip. That seems to be when the stealing of our Mayor began.

Gary Welsh, who writes Advance Indiana, was first to report on Ballard's choice to turn his back on us.

There needs to be an intervention with OUR Mayor on behalf of the People. I hope he is not losing his way.
