Suppose Kentucky’s public school system can be thankful for that of Detroit. Right? At least when it comes to statistics. [NY Times]

More from the department of we’ll believe it when we see it. [WFPL]

Kentucky is the worst state in the country for cutting funding for mental health issues. We are clearly winning the future here in the Commonwealth. [H-L]

Today Congressman John Yarmuth will meet with OPC Pest Control, the American Society of Radiologic Technologists and students from the Danish School. [Press Release]

Steve Beshear says he is turning up the heat on David Williams. Maybe so. But let’s get real. Neither have a clue what’s really going on. Beshear just has more power to spend tax dollars campaigning.

    How else does the Gov get the word out to the people. Stay in Frankfort and let Williams and the repugs keep bullying him? Williams is a punk with a law degree. Bet he got beat up a bunch in school. Oh, I bet he went to private schools.

    Bullying him? HAHAHA. Right.

    What was that, again, about Beshear meeting with House and Senate members to discuss the budget any time in the past three years?

    Oh, right, that’s never happened.

    I love it when Democrats get all partisan and try to pin all responsibility on the Republicans. It’ almost as entertaining as trying to out-Republican the Republicans.
