Commentary: ‘We hold these truths….’

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – The other day, an older couple came to my front door. They were canvassing for Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz. They wanted to know if my wife and I are registered to vote – we are – and if we would be voting for Cruz in the Indiana primary. […]

Commentary: Ted Cruz, on the hoof

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com FRANKLIN, Indiana – Carl R. Blackard and his wife, Christine, arrived at the Johnson County Fairgrounds two hours early to get good seats for the Ted Cruz rally. They drove over from Avon with their 14-year-old son, Carl M. Blackard, because moments when an Indiana presidential primary actually matters are rare. […]

Commentary: Terror on the GOP seas

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – We now know just how much the prospect of having Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee scares the party’s power brokers. A lot. Like enough to make their ancestors’ boots quiver. The GOP’s power brokers are so disturbed by the idea of The Donald being their standard bearer […]

Commentary: Prince and the intimacy of art

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Long, long ago, I slipped into a movie theater that since has been knocked to the ground to watch a sneak preview of a film that hadn’t generated much early buzz.

Commentary: Armageddon comes to Indiana

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana matters. That’s the new message following Tuesday’s New York primary in which Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump – the frontrunners for the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations, respectively – treated their opponents with the same sensitivity a grinder shows for sausage.

Commentary: Take me out to the ballgame

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Indians had a better home opening game than Indiana Gov. Mike Pence did. The Indians beat the Columbus Clippers, 5-1. The governor didn’t do quite that well. When the public address announcer welcomed Pence to the mound to throw out the first pitch, boos rolled over Victory […]

Commentary: Journalists, time for an intervention

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Something called CareerCast just put “newspaper reporter” at the bottom of its annual list of 200 best jobs. That’s right, 200th out of 200. The CareerCast announcement produced the predictable combination of navel-gazing and gnashing of teeth among journalists, present and past, about just how awful things are now […]

Commentary: Don’t ask for whom the bell tolls

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – They tell their stories. They tell their stories of love and loss, of fear and hope, of laughter and tears, of life and death. I’m sitting in a radio studio talking about the upcoming “Before I Die” festival in Indianapolis with Lucia Wocial, a lnurse ethicist with the IUPUI […]

Commentary: Strange days for the GOP

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – It must be strange to be a Republican these days. Members of the GOP spend more time fighting each other than they do on anything else. It would be one thing if this internecine warfare were confined to the cage-match free-for-all that is the Republican presidential nomination process, but […]

Commentary: Make it their fight, too

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – As the storm of protest over Indiana’s new law criminalizing many abortions mounts, a question keeps running through my mind: Why is this just a women’s issue? Before understandably outraged feminists scream for my head to be served to them on a platter, let me explain that I want […]
