LMAS, EMS, MSD, Parks, What’s Next For Greg?

October 31st, 2011 by jake · 4 Comments

Everybody and their mother is emailing us about ear X-tacy’s abrupt closure or whatever went down. It sucks when a local business fails, for sure. But it’s nearly 2012 and you can’t expect a business to survive if it cannot adapt to the market. [Sometimes Things Suck]

Now that Robert White’s been shown the door, who will Greg Fischer select? Do you have high hopes? Is it worth holding your breath? We wish LMPD officers could have a say in the matter.  [WFPL]

It’s been a year and Sullivan student Andrew Compton’s body is still missing. It’s a shame for this community that people like him are typically forgotten. [FOX41]

A discussion about art and quilts sounds like the most mind-numbing thing ever, right? Especially at 9:30 A.M. on a Saturday? Yep. But this one at The Green Building is likely going to be quite enjoyable. [Consuming Louisville]

Remember when that crazy guy poured 15 buckets of asphalt on the steps of the federal courthouse in 2006? Steps are being taken to prevent that from happening again. $800,000 worth of steps, that is. [WAVE3]

Ford got a fancy Moody’s credit rating upgrade. Thank goodness something in Kentucky isn’t completely falling apart. [Business First]

We’re torn between feeling relieved that Robert White is on his way out and sorry for the citizens of Denver. [WHAS11]

For the first time, voter registration in Jefferson County has surpassed the 500,000 mark. Too bad none of those folks will be voting on November 8. [C-J/AKN]

Child sex perverts are going high-tech, apparently, and this is a reason for everybody to freak out like woah. [H-L]

Maybe it’s time for you to take a look at the latest campaign finance numbers to roll out of Kentucky’s gubernatorial race. [Page One]

While everyone in Louisville is wetting their pants over the opening of Trader Joe’s, it’s probably a good idea for them to think with their heads for a minute. Maybe ask a few questions about why the store refuses to support a policy for tomato pickers that even McDonald’s and Yum! support. [More FOX41]

Your favorite mayoral clone, Greg Fischer, is still refusing to lead. And it’s been how many days since the latest scandal? [The 'Ville Voice]

    Tomato-picking illegals (who, by the way don’t have any taxes withheld from those paychecks due to the fact that they are ILLEGAL!).

    Now, with that settled…I attended the Grand Opening of TJ’s Friday and found it quite pleasant. No political harping and not a whiff of patchouli or a dreadlock to be spied.

    You’ve got to be the dumbest mouth-breather reading this website. Jesus fucking christ.

    Illegals? Really? You need to educate yourself. Learn a bit about the Coalition of Immakalee Workers before spouting off.

    And take your racist ignorance elsewhere. You’re finished here, Kimberly Horn. Interesting that nearly every business that pays your salary does so on the backs of actual immigrant labor. Or child slave labor in Asian countries.

    Typical hypocritical teabagging.

    And – really? – even if they were “illegals” considering they aren’t paid a fair wage for their 12+ hour day and get no benefits, it’s not like they’d be paying a lot of taxes anyway….

    CIW representatives and workers visited a political science class I had at UofL several years ago; it was very powerful experience. Other ignoramuses (like Kim) can visit http://www.ciw-online.org/ before spewing more hate. Ignorance breeds ignorance.

    Maybe Mayor Fischer will hire a 26-year-old for Police Chief. Oh yeah – with no college degree.
