Pervert-ibility City: Shit. Go figure. Just because we like Google-ing “cunt” we get tagged with the “Obscene City” title. Better get the tough son of a bitch attorney general on it. [Silicon Alley Insider]
Wonder What These Guys Were Googling: Back in April, we reported that local police were upset with WLKY-TV for prematurely reporting on their Operation Bulldog, a sex sting modeled after the TV show “To Catch a Predator.” Yesterday, the cops announced they’d caught 14 men who had tried to lure cops posing as under-age girls to have sex with them. They’re mostly white guys from the East End. [WLKY]

The Problem With Aspring to be like West Virginia: The Mountaineer Race Track, the first to add slots, is struggling to make it financially, in part because politicians keep taking bigger slices of revenue. Watch for this story to reappear next time Churchill brings up its need for slots. [Courier]

Don’t Send Us a Bill: Remember how we told you about those new SEC rules about blogging at games? It’s the topic of a New York Times national story, which includes news that Wisconsin officials are sending bills to bloggers it determines are reporting on games. [NYTimes]
Media at the Fair: It’s WHAS-TV Day and either Andy, Rachel or Kelsey will be kissing a pig. Funny. I mean typing “kissing a pig.”
