  1. It seems odd that it required innocents to film this series when, as those of you who have ever watched 'Cops' know, EVERYONE in jail is innocent and only there because they were victims of the 'system'.

  2. What a fine example of the best of the Hoosier tradition! How sad that the AP has to include partisan snark in the obit for this great American patriot and adventurer.

  3. (1)SB 91 does NOT release the original birth certificate. It releases the "birth record" which is what the birth summary (taken from the obc) is named in IC 16. The birth summary (aka "birth record") does not meet state Secure or federal Real Id requirements. Both require those who were adopted after their first birthday to show their original or certified birth certificate. This is NOT an "access" bill. It is a Registry bill. SB 91 trades adult adoptee's (over the age of 21), who were adopted on or after Jan.1,1994, ability to have mutual and voluntary contact with extended biological family members for those adopted before Jan. 1,1994 being able to receive a copy of their birth summary. In addition, it takes the already burdensome Indiana Adoption Medical History Registry process and makes it even more difficult. SB 91 tells the Registrar to get rid of the current non-release of information form (Section 16, SB 91), then to establish a non-release of information form (Section 17, SB91) that does the exact same thing as the one repealed in Section 16, and then tells the Registrar to establish yet another non-release of information form that is to be incorrectly named a "Contact Preference Form" (Section 18, SB91). A Contact Preference Forms is an actual and real form used in true access legislation that allow a biological parent to state their contact comfort level (want contact, contact with intermedicary, or no contact) in a private, written communication to the adult adoptee. In its "true sense", Contact Preference Forms do not have anything to do with the release of information. Nor do Contact Preference Forms hold any legal teeth. The form's name and its terminology are NOT interchangeable with a non-release form simply because someone thinks "contact preference form" sounds more pleasing. If the form allows the restriction of one's information then it is a non-release form. (2) SB 91 does NOT release the medical file. "Medical Record" is the name given to the Indiana Adoption Medical History form IN 9966 which every Indiana born, adult-adoptee already has access to regardless when we were born or adopted. SB 91 doesn't even address the "Medical Record" form. (3) I am an Indiana born, adult-adoptee. I am a Hoosier. Indiana legislators are supposed to vote according to the wishes of those in their district and not according to what those in another state may or may have not done. This is NOT Ohio. And Ohio's law is nothing to cheer over. It treats adult, taxpaying citizens as perpetual children. Ohio's law is degrading and discriminatory. I want and expect better for my state, for myself, and for my fellow adult adoptees.
