    "Back Home Again in Indiana" every year before the Indy500; he has for years - kind of an institution in my neck of the woods. I can now so sadly see fellow "Hoosiers" having an uproar saying he shouldn't be allowed to sing it anymore. Well, they can Go Cheney Themselves!

      out by his supporters.  Haters always think everyone else (that they don't hate) think just like they do.  For institutions like this, his supporters would rally strongly.  I'm just sad to see he's apparently in poor health.  We'll see in a few months if he's going to be able to sing it again.

      Jim Nabors is bigger than any bigoted Indy Car fan's bigotry.

      He didn't make it last year due to heart surgery and everyone is looking forward to hearing him sing again.  Everyone, that is, who is worth thinking about.

      Sing it, Jim!
