Victims come forward in the 'clothing nightmare' (03/23/08)
Open mouth and insert foot. "You have a way of getting to the center of an argument no one wants to fight about," my Grandmother Iva used to tell me after I would find my foot in my mouth. "You sure can spark a lively conversation." In a recent column I wrote about the nightmare of the fashion industry and how difficult it can be for women to go shopping for clothes. Little did I know how big a firestorm of controversy I was igniting?...

Questioning politics and religion (03/23/08)
To the Editor: All Republicans are conservatives? Hoosier conservatives blame liberals for everything, including the nut that fell from the tree of Bush. Are you sure you're not a Democrat?

You may be a conservative...
