It’s Friday and Time to Slack Completely Off

January 22nd, 2010 by jake · 7 Comments

Greg Fischer said yesterday that no one in the middle class wants to live downtown in something that doesn’t cost a million bucks. Apparently somebody needs to clue Greg in ASAP? Gill Holland? Somebody? Because that’s some horse shiz. [Mayoral Forum Thingy]

Larry Hausman is kicking off his congressional campaign on Monday the 25th, 11:00 A.M., Bowman Field Airport Terminal. [Press Release]

Not surprisingly, your hometown newspaper thinks it’s fine and dandy to prey on the emotions of consumers by using Haiti to make a buck. Guess it’s no worse than a non-profit having overhead costs. Though, it’d be just as easy for a business to donate a portion of proceeds rather than use a disaster to to pull in profits. [C-J]

Yesterday President Barack Obama announced the Presidential Citizens Medal. Get all the details and watch the video at the link. [White House]

Jefferson County PVA Tony Lindauer wants to know what you think. [Take The Survey]

How sad. Somebody jumped to their death from the Heyburn Building yesterday. [C-J]

Fairdale Bigfoot is still running for mayor and he’s got a new advice column this week! Relationship advice time! [Consuming Louisville]

That Jesus Museum in Northern Kentucky is going to be pissed that the Louisville Zoo is about to play host to some robodinos. [WHAS11]

Big news for the corner of Market & Cambell. New restaurant, wine shop. Excitement! [C-J]

Suburban dollars fund urban services but benefits are often shared? [WFPL]

    Is Fischer that disconnected from the people of this community? I suppose so.

    I didn’t attend the forum…too busy developing my moderately priced residential projects on Fourth St. and Main St. for the middle class.

    Don’t you get it, David?! Nobody wants to live in your affordable development!

    Heh.

    David, WFPL has a podcast of the entire forum. (MP3)

    I was there an didn’t catch the comment by Fischer.

    Truth be told I thought he did the best of any of the candidates, and many others I’ve spoken with felt the same way.

    Oh well.

    I listed to the entire thing, and I felt that Fischer fumbled the first question, by not answering it and basically blithering. Otherwise, his positions were somewhat acceptable.

    I have to say that even though I don’t support him, Thieneman gave me the most food for thought and impressed me with his unusual calm — I hope he keeps it up, so he can make it a real race between himself and Heiner.

    My favored candidate Tyler Allen held his own and I think anyone listening would be kind of off their rocker to call him a “dark horse” in this race. He left the impression that he understood the complexity of many of the issues, and isn’t a one-trick pony, as many might think.

    I was impressed by Heiner’s vehemence about “living in Frankfort” during legislative sessions, but I don’t think that this is realistic. This city is too busy for our mayor to spend that much time away from the city’s business.
