Where's the beef?

Dateline: Mon 11 Feb 2013

For the second week in a row, the Indianapolis Star's metro/state page is content lite. Or really, content non-existent.

Never have seen it before, but this critical page led off with a feature story -- yes, a feature --- on matchmaking. Athird of the space above the fold was devoted to white space, and the designers gave us a feature-style headline with two red hearts and arrows. Lame.

This isn't art, and the story certainly is not news.

The paper needs to do a better job of packaging its Sunday content. Or, do the obvious: hire some reporters to do the work.

That said, Tim Evans' Page 1 story on the disgraced attorney, 65-year-old William F. Conour, was a good read. But left unanswered is what made this so-called brilliant, respected and humble son of the Eastside go off the rails? I suspect a second marriage, mid-life crisis type thing? 

But who knows?

Also, thanks to readers for putting up with the spam trolls. They are on the loose.
