Buy A Meth House Unawares And Pay The Health Consequences
The residue from meth labs can cause health problems, but people aren't always told that the house they're buying is contaminated. An Indiana law requires disclosure but not mandatory testing.

“The kids were constantly sick and struggling to sleep. The Nugents puzzled over their children’s health problems until a neighbor mentioned that the previous homeowner referred to the bathroom as his ‘smoke shop.’ That’s when Nugent paid $50 for a methamphetamine test. The first test revealed meth levels three times the legal limit. When meth is smoked, dangerous chemicals are released into the air that can cling to clothing, carpets and walls.“

Duke Ellington’s Jump for Joy: How it Happened

Duke Ellington’s 1941 groundbreaking theater production Jump For Joy only ran for 122 performances, but was both musically and socially a successful endeavor for the Maestro. Our good friend David Brent Johnson produced a feature on Duke’s triumph for WFIU in Indianapolis over 10 years ago, which is now running on various NPR stations.
