Greg Fischer may be a repeat of Jerry Abramson but at least he’s not this ridiculous. [NPR]

The Louisville Orchestra is STILL a disaster for the city. Still. Musicians have like five minutes to decide whether or not they want to stay. [C-J/AKN]

A new analysis of the temperature record leaves little room for the doubters. The world is warming. Mouth-breathers like Jim Gooch can’t deal with it. [The Economsit]

K.C. Crosbie still has no flipping clue what the job she’s running for entails. It’s tough to be worse than Todd Hollenbach so we’re a little surprised. [Page One]

Here’s a fancy story about the UPS Worldport. You may not know all of this information. [HuffPo]

That’s what Louisville needs, right? Dunkin’ Donuts in the Highlands? We’ll stick with our local bakeries. [Consuming Louisville]

How do you feel about this “Code Red” emergency alert system Greg Fischer spent money on? It’ll be interesting to find out how much Louisville spent on this. Primarily because there’s another company that’s actually Kentucky-based that provides the same services. [Click the Clicky]

John David is right about the press giving Jerry Abramson a 100% free pass. He’s got a flipping scandalous history and it has been completely ignored. [More C-J/AKN]

The bridge is jacking things up for voters in Southern Indiana. Apparently, more absentee ballots are being requested this year. [WAVE3]

GLI is planning a fancy commerce trip to India. Which means way more outsourcing of area jobs. [Business First]

Remember Kimberly Bunton? Jerry Abramson’s favorite person and former Metro Housing Director who stole taxpayer dollars for her mom? Pre-trial has been set. [WHAS11]

    Re “Red Code” — It will be interesting to see how the residential phone “bomb” will work… It sticks in my mind how our Jeff. Co. phone lines have repeatedly been “overwhelmed” during prior catastrophes. I remember pleas for citizens NOT to make calls to family & friends during a crucial period so that emergency calls could get through otherwise overloaded lines. Yet Red Code is supposed to simultaneously call ALL of us?? But, maybe our phone lines & connectivity have greatly improved.

    I’ll never, ever understand how Happy Pants was enabled to have a ‘free pass’ — particularly in his final (local) administration. It’s almost embarrassing to Kentucky and the credibility of our state that the CJ/AKN would be allowed to completely ignore the total ‘fubar’ that his final administration turned out to be. Amazing.
