Monday Morning of Pig Guts & Helping the Homeless

Can you believe the Courier-Journal allowed Joe Gerth to publish my name? Woah. Thanks for that, Joe. As for Mike Bryant – he’s being totally dishonest when he says he wasn’t trying to hide his identity. He’d changed his domain name registration in an attempt to do just that – and i wrote about it at the time. [Joe Gerth]

Artwork for the 2010 Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks has been unveiled. [WFPL]

Look, just don’t eat anything from a concession stand unless you’ve consumed enough alcohol to kill any sort of germ you’ll be ingesting. [WHAS11]

The Metro Council is none too happy with Jerry Abramson’s decision to screw them out of a seat on the Ohio River Bridges Project panel. We all know that Mayor McCheese loves the Metro Councilcritters so this must be some sort of oversight. Heh. [C-J]

Swift is ignorantly claiming that opposition to its law breaking and purposeful zoning ignorance will kill its jobs. Unfortunately, people like Rep. Joni Jenkins know better but they still plan to speak out in support of Swift – further allowing the company to ignore zoning restrictions, the law and the health of the neighborhood. I know she knows better – I’ve had conversations with her – but she still plans to say what she knows not to be true when she visits the zoning board today. The Swift battle affects more than Butchertown. The problems Swift faces have been brought on not by upset neighborhood types – but by Swift itself. [C-J]
