Mitch does it with style

Mitch Daniels, the smartest, most personable guy to ever occupy the Indiana governor’s office, opened a 60-mile stretch of the new I-69 extension, riding his Harley-Davidson from Evansville to Washington, Ind.

When complete, the I-69 extension will create an Interstate route diagonally across the state from northeast to southwest and create the first four-lane divided highway link between Indianapolis and Evansville.

Barred from seeking a third term by Indiana’s term limit law, Mitch will become president of Purdue University after the first of the year. His successor Mike Pence is a smart guy, but Mitch will be a hard act to follow.
