Dept. of No Fooling and Yo We Ain’t Leaving

August 19th, 2009 by admin · 10 Comments

A Polling We Will Go: The first Survey USA poll of the U.S. Senate race came out yesterday. Mongiardo leads Conway overall 39-31. Grayson leads Paul 37-26. Of course there’s more to the story. [Page One]

Why Our Court System is Messed Up: Because ex-PRP coach Jason Stinson was re-indicted on wanton endangerment after his first indictment was dismissed by a judge. [AP]

A University Buys a Hotel: But it’s Sullivan, and the hotel is a Holiday Inn.  The rapidly growing Sullivan campus will be able to house 400 students in the old Holiday Inn near the KFC HQ. [Fox41]

Fooling Some of the People: A thousand people showed up to listen to Republican pro-life doctors bitch about Obama’s health care plan. They went nuts when one of them brought up not wanting to perform abortions, so we know what it was really about.  Too bad some of those people — who didn’t read our story –  thought they were going to an unbiased town hall. And check out the lady defining socialism for us all.  [WHAS-TV]

Obligatory Pitino Mention: Atlanta columnist Jeff Schultz reported word from the Twitter accounts of two Pitino recruits, adding to the rationale why the Coach is still in charge. Peyton Siva wrote: “Yo I ain’t leaving. Rick(’s) personal life is his life. He’s here to coach me and is the best teach of hoop to me!” [AJC]

Fair Game: I’m with Jake on this one. If you want me to go over and look at all the crap at the State Fair, you’ll have to send me some tickets. Still, the Fair is a big deal. It starts on Thursday. [Page One]

Pass the Smell Test: Of course neighbors are concerned that MSD is allowing a truck wash for pig haulers to open back up and continue putting pig poop in the sewers. [Courier]

Our  View – Don’t Worry About Getting U of L Tickets: U of L says it’s selling a lot of season ticket packages to watch this 2009 football team. Maybe. But we still say you’re going to have to dodge all the tickets flying around on Saturdays this fall. [Courier]

Get Up, Tune In: Watch The ‘Ville Voice/Page One segment on Fox41 this morning with Barry Bernson. At 7:45, or later here on the site.

    Pig Poo: Too bad this story didn’t come out in time to send MSD an honorary Golden one. Besides, compared to what washes into the drains out of City Hall, pig poo ‘s nuttin’… In Possibility City, the possibility of us getting more poo hosed onto us daily is so high perhaps we should start calling ourselves Inevitability City.

    And what do those people think THEY flush down the toilet? It sure ain’t eco-friendly turds!

    Love the socialism lady. Guess all of those ‘socialized’ banks and car dealerships would rather just go belly-up. Isn’t government already involved in health care — Medicare, Medicaid? Heeeelllllo.

    Big thanks to WHAS for engaging in journalism, this time.

    A SurveyUSA off-shoot called Overnight Research called last night about Pitino/Sypher/UofL issues. Probably for WHAS11, so stay tuned.

    Another thought about the faux town hall…

    So now we can add another group to the birthers, deathers, mouth breathers and teabaggers…

    the anti-freedom fetus fetishers.

    Hopefully these fringe groups will not be allowed to derail the health reform we all need.

    I wondered what was going on with the Holiday Inn property on Gardiner Lane at the Watterson. Bob Evans moved out several months ago, then a couple of nights ago I read that Holiday Inn was moving, too. Residents near Goldsmith Ln & Bardstown Rd will be disappointed that the rumors of Sullivan buying out the Economy Inn are false.

    Sullivan, is that exactly a university or what is it? In jest of course. I really have to wonder why a college such as that can’t figure out how to build its own campus somewhere
