John Mellencamp is an American rock singer-songwriter, musician, painter and occasional actor known for his catchy, populist brand of heartland rock.

As the Republican controlled Indiana state senate moved to vote 38-10 for a constitutional ban on marriage for gay couples last week, Fortune 500 member Cummins, Inc. said, "No." The CEO of Cummins sent a representative with his letter stating, "...inequity in marital status has no place in Indiana." [Link] This is not Cummins' first time weighing in on marriage equality. Back in March of 2007, when Indiana was considering a ban on the freedom to marry, an executive from Cummins Inc. said the amendment would make it harder for the big engine maker to recruit quality employees to Indiana. "Anything that makes Indiana less inclusive and less welcoming for our current employees and for our future employees makes it more difficult for Cummins to compete," said Mark Osowick, Cummins' recruiting director. "This amendment would do just that by sending a message that Indiana is not tolerant of diversity." [Link]

I was there this morning as Indiana State Senator Greg Taylor (D)--unlike the Republican majority--battled against enshrining discrimination in the state's constitution. Even after this 6-4 loss for the freedom to marry in committee, my heart still pounds with pride as I recall one African American after another, including Taylor, speaking boldy against this discrimination.
