Some of those jobs Steve Beshear boasts about creating just do not exist. But you already knew that. Seriously – just read the second paragraph and laugh: Hundreds of specific jobs that the Democratic governor identifies on his campaign Web site actually have not been created since the initial press releases went out, or they were partially offset by subsequent layoffs at the same companies, or they were announced under Ernie Fletcher, Beshear’s Republican predecessor. I predict Steve Beshear will try to get John Cheves fired as he tried to do with Ryan Alessi during the Kentucky Central story. [John Cheves]

Ford could add some 10,000 jobs but would any of them end up in Louisville? [Business First]

Steve Beshear is the biggest coal shill in Kentucky but no Democrats want to admit it or have a discussion about it. [WLKY]

Greg Fischer is riding his bike for the second time this year. We hope you’re doing the same and we hope the city makes it easier and easier for you to do so. [Broken Sidewalk]

We stand by our assertion that Greg Fischer only ran for mayor to appear more frequently in the local party rags and to embarrass us on White House video. [WFPL]

    I think it’s great that someone finally (!!) brought one of Indiana’s senators to the bridge to take a look. God knows they wouldn’t find it on his own.
