Opening Day Follies

Good Morning! It’s Opening Day for the Louisville Bats, and the rain is not supposed to start until after the game. Let’s see who’s screwing up enough to get in the news today, starting with this crazy costume shop owner in Cranston, R.I. who shocks a reporter on an ambush over a cyberstalking crime. Really, it’s worth watching the video.

http://mavericksmiraclebabies.org/?p=7087 Off With A Warning: Ali Ahmedi, the Javanon Soccer Club president and employee of the Public Works Department, is getting off with a warning from the city after his involvement in constructing an illegal building. This quote may indicate why he’s avoided the media: “I think somebody wanted to punish somebody, so they punish me,” he told the C-J. Considering it’s not the first time he’s been warned, the punishing should have been stronger. [Courier]

Felner acknowledged at the end of the daylong interview, that he’d done some stupid stuff, actually asking if being stupid was a defense. [Courier, Page One]

Naked Truth: We just checked headlines of the local news organizations’ coverage of the Okolona shooting yesterday. Most showed great restraint in writing the headline to the story, avoiding the obvious description of the man who started it all. Not WHAS-TV: “Naked man shoots 2 including police officer” which is what we would have written. [WHAS-TV]

Novel Crime Idea: In the West End, a couple of guys decided to call on residents posing as police officers, asking for money and possessions. Victims, all 70 or older, fell for it when the scammers asked to see the serial numbers on their cash. The suspects haven’t been caught. [WLKY]

No Alexandra: For those of you who keep asking, we hear that Alexandra Koetter has indeed left the traffic desk at WLKY-TV.

  1. Alexandra left and was replaced by another blonde bombshell.

    Kim Stevens left and was replaced by a blonde.

    Bob Symon was fired and was replaced by a blonde.

    Is there a pattern here?

  2. So there’s another blond in Alexandra’s place? I can’t stomach watching that show for even 5 minutes but somehow it doesn’t surprise me they have a cookie cutter image to fill for each position. and for anyone who doesn’t fit their criteria (like the entire number one morning show team) gets replaced. I just LOVE the new promo saying they’re number one in the morning. ON THE WEEKENDS…and i’m sorry but there are only TWO morning shows. so if you ain’t first, you’re last right? and the fine print lists like a one hour time frame for one day of the weekend. they’re pitiful. good for Alexandra…no point in going down with that ship.

  3. Hmm. The comment left by ‘Local Viewer’ is bitter, trite, spiteful and laced with just the right amount of sarcasm. $100 bucks says ‘Local Viewer’ is an ex 32er…I won’t say any names
    (rhymes with Shabby Smiller)

  4. Actually no, if I understand you correctly, I have never worked at that station. I just know people who CURRENTLY do, and I’m observant. Sorry if that makes me sound better, but it doesn’t mean I’m wrong. I truly haven’t seen the new hire…is it a person who looks just like Alexandra? I’ll have to check. And there are only two morning shows on the weekends right? I’ll take my $100, I work at Ford on Chamberlain Lane.

  6. Yes, I believe they are number one… Saturday mornings… at 5am… before the other station begins their newscast…
