The African-American Think Tank is speaking out against the Thunder Over Louisville decision to require a Pegasus Pin (aka admission) for large portions of the waterfront. [WAVE3]

What are you doing this morning? Need something to complain about? Maybe you could go scream and complain in an attempt to save Whiskey Row. [Facebook]

Louisville is the ninth-worst out of 372 U.S. cities for most jobs lost in 2010. [LEO Weekly]

But wait! Louisville is in the #2 spot on this list of America’s top ten cities with the highest fast food saturation! Yet another top ten. WOO! We may be 16th-With-A-Bullet, but we’re 2nd-With-The-Corn-Syrup-Jiggle. [Consumerist]

Here’s what John Yarmuth thinks about Hal Rogers’ silly budgetary pat-a-cake: “One of the founding principles of our nation is that elected representatives of the people should have a say in the levying and spending of tax dollars. Now, 434 members of Congress and the people they represent have been stripped of that right under this outrageous King-for-a-Day budget rule. Whether it is a Republican calling for spending cuts of more than $100 billion or a Democrat fighting for investments in job creation and small business, the constituents of every member of Congress but one have lost their representation on this critical issue of national concern.“ [Press Release]

Don’t forget that Vice President Joe Biden will be in town this Friday. Video will be streamed live of his speech at 11:30 A.M. [FOX41]

Looks like Whiskey Row could become a parking lot. All right for Greg Fischer’s transparency! An entire stretch of Main Street turning into a parking lot for five years. Way to go, Louisville! [FatLip]

What will the poor in our fair city do when energy assistance is further cut? [HuffPo]

That whole penal drug interdiction story? It’s gone so mainstream it’s on this very important website. [The Smoking Gun]

Seriously, when will it end? When will we no longer have to read about the Karen Sypher sexytime scandal? [H-L]

Hahaha, Churchil Downs is still denying involvement in the Kentucky Derby Festival snafu. And the KDF folks are saying there’s nothing to the story – while winking. [Joe Arnold]

    I think the correct term is ‘penile’.
