Indy cop no longer “exemplary”
In reporting on the recent court case involving an Indianapolis police officer, an Indianapolis television reporter just announced that “Officer Bisard had been an exemplary officer for years.”
I would offer a different take, to-wit: I’m suggesting that Officer Bisard may have been a chronic drunk for many years. We will never know how many times he may have been covered for by “The Blue Wall of Silence.”
I do not doubt that the decorated officer performed some, perhaps many, really useful duties during his lengthy service, but those “exemplary” services were erased by his felonious actions in causing death and serious injury by driving and speeding while drunk.
I would declare to his lawyers: These are merely allegations and not statements of fact, so don’t bother to sue me for saying what thousands of people already think; also, the fact that he has been duly convicted is not a matter of conjecture.

Okay, fair is fair
Two days into the roll-out of The Affordable Care Act, I wrote a rather scathing letter relating the repeated failed attempts by my wife and me to enroll her in one of the new government approved health care plans. She was one of those who had been notified that her health care coverage, with Starbridge, a company connected to her long-time employer K-Mart, would end Dec. 31, 2013.
I wish now to report that all the foofaraw re her health coverage was premature and she will have better-than-ever supplemental coverage commencing Jan. 1, 2014.
I have had supplemental coverage with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield for at least a decade and have been totally satisfied with that company’s performance; hence, Marilyn opted to also go with Anthem as her new supplemental insurer, based upon my experience.
