Press Will Miss McCheese. The Rest, Not So Much

November 29th, 2010 by jake · 3 Comments

Here’s an odd interview with Jerry Abramson from the day before Thanksgiving. [WHAS11]

News of the Louisville Orchestra weighing bankruptcy has hit the Associated Press wire and has spread all over. We love the orchestra. Hopefully folks will show up for performances. Seems like this happens frequently, though. [H-L]

All I’m saying is that filling up these food deserts is a terrific flipping thing to behold. [LEO Weekly]

Are you disgusted that Mitch McConnell wants to continue the discrimination of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell? If not, you should be. [LA Times]

A dog was shot multiple times and folks need help caring for it. [WAVE3]

Go to Light Up Louisville this year? How was it? Super-exciting? Over-the-top? Wasteful? Pretty? Nice? Just okay? [FOX 41]

The entire world is in a fury over the latest documents leaked by WikiLeaks. All kinds of details about secret diplomatic work by the United States. [NY Times]

Suburban poverty is a growing symptom of the recession. And it’s becoming more and more common here in Louisville. [LEO Weekly]

And this editorial about the cycle of prison and poverty in Kentucky examines another area of the problem. [H-L]

Remember the financial scandal involving the Mint Jubilee? Apparently, we’re all just supposed to forget all that happened. With millions of dollars not going to charity. [More WHAS11]

    I guess Chris Thienamann didn’t like his Derby seat location and how much came out of his own pocket to pay for them the last few years. People need to just forget this gala and donate their money directly to a charity.

    “News of the Louisville Orchestra weighing bankruptcy has hit the Associated Press wire and has spread all over. We love the orchestra. Hopefully folks will show up for performances. Seems like this happens frequently, though.”

    When earXtacy makes press about needing consumers they are told to lie down and understand that people don’t want what they have. Yet the orchestra makes yet another bankruptcy cry and I don’t hear one mention that people don’t want what they have, but rather that people should show up to performances. I can just download any orchestra performance I want on iTunes.

    Maybe you could read before commenting?

    And I quote:

    See that?

    It’s not the first time the orchestra has done this.
