Separate but equal but not really (wink, wink).


The City of New Albany has recently spent an amount on Spring Street Hill Road nearly double the state’s total $1.2 million annual TARC outlay to fund transit in the whole of Southern Indiana.

That poorly located, two-fifths mile of engineering accident serving a very limited but very specific population was deemed a high priority necessity for all the goofy reasons Bob “adverse and disproportionate are good, right?” Caesar and a handful of well placed others could muster.

But cut multiple bus routes on which other parts of the city depend for work, groceries, trips to the doctor, etc.? Shucks and shrugs all around. Sorry about your luck.

Given that we’re about to spend another million or so on Governor’s Balls and the like patting ourselves on the back for 200 years of ongoing something or other, isn’t it about time we address the blatant, class-based attitudes that fuel our politics as much now as they did when Washington C. DePauw owned our government?
