Enlist as I have enlisted.
Promise as I have promised.
Train as I have trained.
Travel to far away and unfamiliar lands as I have traveled.
Place yourself in harms way, as I have.
Kill in the name of freedom and safety for those back home, as I have.
Then, and only then, will you have earned as I have earned to criticize the way our National Anthem is performed.
Want to take an issue to the Indiana General Assembly when lawmakers return to work today? Get in line.
Under new policies announced by the state, access will be limited to about 3,000 people. Sort of.
And members of the general public will have to enter only through the east entrance -- except for all the people who don't.
Those folks include not just government employees, but lobbyists, reporters, anyone attending a special event such as a school tour or today's prayer day, anyone with an appointment or court hearing, and anyone whom a legislator has told State Police to let in, such as people the lawmaker wants to testify for a bill.
Rep. Ed DeLaney, D-Indianapolis, said he's decided he will not meet with any lobbyist until this rule is rescinded.
"I cannot allow some groups to be favored over others," he said. "I can't let somebody filter who gets to talk to me, and let those who are paid to represent positions be free to talk to me and other people can't."
