Ind. Gov't. - Be careful what you ask for ...

That is the theme of CNHI's Maureen Hayden's column in the Monday Terre Haute Tribune Star, headed "Pence may find himself in a mess if he gets what he wants," recounting the experience of Gov. Sam Brownback of Kansas.

This follows on the Trib-Star's editorial yesterday that begins:

TERRE HAUTE — If Gov. Mike Pence gets his wish, incoming motorists will see “Welcome to Indiana” highway signs also bearing the phrase “the lowest taxed state in the Midwest.”

Let’s hope those visitors don’t hit a pothole as they momentarily divert their gaze.

We also hope the traffic inbound to the Hoosier state includes the Koch brothers — billionaires from Kansas and New York. It would be enlightening for both to physically drive a few dozen miles on the backroads and highways across our state, Indiana. Many of those byways are bumpier than any time in recent memory. Some are crumbling. Those problems matter here.
