You Said It: About Pence tax plan, meth arrests and reservoir discussions

ANDERSON, Ind. — Each Monday, The Herald Bulletin publishes “You Said It,” a compilation of reader comments from www.theheraldbulletin.com, coupled with responses by the newspaper’s editorial board.

New poll shows Hoosier voters tepid on Gov. Pence’s tax plan. (Article published April 24.)

  •  “Like most things, looks good on paper but in reality we get next to nothing out of the deal. Besides I’m sure that a new tax would crop up to offset the tax cut.”

THB: Gov. Pence needs to get in touch with what the residents of this state really want.

Three suspects arrested and a child was found during a meth lab bust earlier this month. (April 20)

  •  “OK, so he was on probation and he had a lab in his home on March 10th? What in the world was he doing free? Does anyone not care that all these children’s lives were in danger with him that close to a school? Why wasn’t he already in jail? This is exactly why I have zero faith in Madison County. When is someone going to be held responsible for letting people be free when they should obviously be incarcerated?”

THB: Innocent until found guilty, but the comment includes some good questions.

Poetry helps ex-convict Michael A. Pierce overcome his personal battles. (April 21)

  • “Just one example of why it is so foolish to de-emphasize art, music and literature in schools. Science and math are of vital importance, but they don’t nurture our spirits or souls.”

THB: Agreed, one never knows where life will take you and what skill set you might need.

Chesterfield and Anderson residents turned out for a panel-style discussion on the proposed reservoir April 16. (April 17)

  • “There was no “discussion’ at all. A discussion is when two or more people exchange thoughts and ideas. This was a “presentation” totally staged event, geared to convince people of a false belief that somehow this “lake” is going to solve a contrived crisis!”
