Commentary: Not Pravda, just a screw-up

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Mike Pence’s friends say he bristles at comparisons with his predecessor as governor, fellow Republican Mitch Daniels, so what I’m about to say might annoy him.

Commentary: Power, money and education reform

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – Long ago, Lord Acton famously said, “Power tends to corrupt.” The same can be true of money. One of the many tragedies accompanying the destructive debate over education “reform” in Indiana is the way those two corrupting forces – power and money – have come together.

Commentary: Here’s how to deflate the Patriots

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – Boy, “Deflategate” sure has drained the air out of the New England Patriots’ balloon, hasn’t it?

Commentary: Obama reminds Republicans that he’s still the prez

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – It’s good to be the president of the United States.

Letter to the editor: Krull’s attack of Sen. Delph unfair

To the editor: It is always entertaining when liberal elites attack Christian Statesman.  John Krull, the former head of the Indiana Civil Liberties Union, has developed a fetish for my state Sen. Mike Delph.  Truth be told Krull is mad that he was disinvited to moderate a 2014 Jewish Community Relations Council candidates’ forum in Indianapolis […]

Commentary: We shall overcome, 21st century version

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – Somehow it’s fitting that the U.S. Supreme Court decided to consider states’ bans on same-sex marriages just as the nation started the Martin Luther King Jr. national holiday.

Commentary: Education reform and the war on teachers’ unions

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – This session of the Indiana General Assembly blows away a lot of the smoke surrounding the nasty debate about education in the Hoosier state.

Commentary: Mike Pence and the State of the State that didn’t sizzle

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Gov. Mike Pence offered up a curious, even strange, performance with his third State of the State address Tuesday night. Pence, who has attracted national attention as a possible 2016 Republican presidential candidate, did nothing to quell speculation about his ambitions. The speech in many ways was designed […]

Commentary: Charlie Hebdo and the mind of man

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – So, the brothers who murdered 12 people in Paris said they wanted to die as “martyrs.” They didn’t.
