  1. Questions after Indiana school stage collapse injures 16Read the original story w/Photo

    4 hrs ago | KNUS-AM Aurora

    The superintendent of an Indiana school district where a stage collapsed, injuring 16 high school students when they plunged into an orchestra pit, said Friday that the section that gave way was only a few years old, but it's unclear whether it was ever subject to inspection. The uncertainty surrounding the regulation of the orchestra pit cover that collapsed during Thursday's finale of a musical at Westfield High School, 20 miles north of Indianapolis, is reminiscent of questions that arose in 2011, when heavy winds toppled stage rigging onto fans awaiting a performance by country duo Sugarland at the Indiana State Fair.

    So, once again, god's Big Book of Bad Ideas flaps its flyblown pages over Hoosier pig farms and all those scary tiny towns with one stop sign where the second-generation KLAN led the parade of loonies in the Twenties.

    The obvious goal of the Ohio Democratic Party's April 11 endorsement of ex-Gov. Ted Strickland to be its 2016 U.S. Senate nominee was to nudge another Democrat out of the race and give Strickland a clear shot against GOP Sen. Rob Portman of suburban Cincinnati. But besides likely backfiring, the maneuver shows the extent to which narrow-minded self interest still guides Ohio Democratic Party insiders despite the party's poor electoral showing in recent statewide races.
