Well, Indiana is sure gonna be sorry now. First Angie's List and now Ron Swanson? OUCH.

Angie's List isn't the only one expressing "ZOMG WTF?" at Indiana's new law that straight up gives businesses the right to discriminate if they want to.

"We are putting the 'Ford Building Project' on hold until we fully understand the implications of the freedom restoration act on our employees, both current and future.

Angie's List is open to all and discriminates against none and we are hugely disappointed in what this bill represents." — Angie's List CEO Bill Oesterle

Shucks. They were about to break ground on a campus expansion there in a few days and now are scrambling to find a new place to build. It's worth it to make a stand for equality, though.

But it's not like anyone else really cares, right? OR ACTUALLY:


OUCH. Nick Offerman is pretty much an Indiana hero because of "Parks and Recreation," which is set in Pawnee. He's taking a pretty strong stand here.

Indiana's governor might think he's pretty tough right now, but it's kind of cool to see all the people rising up to tell him what's up. Who will step up and shun Indiana next?

Last month, the Chicago Public Library system became the largest in the country to eliminate late fees thanks to Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot.

While the move, which was implemented October 1, was intended to "remove unfair barriers to basic library access, especially for youth and low-income patrons," it had another positive outcome. Since the removal of overdue fees, along with the elimination of any outstanding charges on people's accounts, libraries across the city saw a surge in the return of overdue books over the last several weeks.

"The amount of books returned has increased by 240 percent…We're very, very happy to have that. … Those books have a value and cost money to buy. We want those assets back. We also want the patron to come back," Library Commissioner Andrea Telli said at a City Council budget hearing, the Chicago-Sun Times reports.

According to a press release from Lightfoot, late fees rarely have the impact they're intended to. "Research from other fine-free systems has indicated that fines do not increase return rates, and further that the cost of collecting and maintaining overdue fees often outweighs the revenue generated by them."

Madison Square Garden in New York City is known for having hosted some legendary performances. George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh in '71, Billy Joel's 12 sellouts in '06, and Carmelo Anthony's 62 points in a 2014 victory against the Charlotte Bobcats, just to name a few.

But it's hard to imagine one person holding the legendary arena in the palm of their hand quite like Pete DuPré, better known as "Harmonica Pete," did on Veterans Day.
