    Louis Inglehart created Ball State's journalism school, and helped to found the Student Press Law Center. He was an advocate for high school and college journalism students in Indiana and throughout the nation.

    I wonder if Whitlock knew him?
    Jason? You there?

    I'll leave the "boom goes the dynamite" crack to someone else ...

    Did he try to talk young Gene Policinski into another line of work besides newspapers? If he did, then he's my hero.

    For better or worse, Ball State's J-school budged the needle.

    RIP.

    When I was a mere student journalist, the Student Press Law Center helped me out with some very good advice at a time when I and my paper desperately needed it. Nothing but good things to say about that outfit, and I'm very glad people like Mr. Inglehart got the center going. Without it, we wouldn't have known what our legal options were (and, unofficially, I got some very good ideas about working the rumor mill that made a good number of student government types squirm). Possibly the only time in my alma mater's history that the editor of the campus newspaper was the BMOC because he not only knew where all the bodies were buried, but knew who buried them and had a map to the grave sites. ;D

    RIP, Mr. Inglehart.
