Most-Hated Former Congresscritter’s Having Fun

November 15th, 2011 by jake · 3 Comments

Atherton has to be the most important part of Louisville, right? Must be. Because the paper has mentioned Greg Fischer’s meeting there at least 100 times. [C-J/AKN]

Wondering what Anne Northup is up to these days? She’s involved in the partisan gridlock threatening the Consumer Product Safety Commission, that’s what. [WaPo]

Okay, kids, should we be holding our breath that Greg Fischer will actually selected a chief for the LMPD that officers respect and the city will appreciate? [WFPL]

Lexington Mayor Jim Gray has postponed plans to alter that city’s police take-home car program. They could learn a lot from Louisville. [H-L]

Today at 10:00 A.M. Congressman John Yarmuth will take part in the House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations hearing to discuss current foreign policy with Iran. [Press Release]

Really, this is the same protest that’s been going on since 2002 or 2003. Same people, even. Just a deeper cause. [C-J/AKN]

The University of Louisville received a $1.1 million grant from the Department of Education to help JCPS students via the Talent Search program. We apologize for the Robert Felner-related PTSD moment we just caused. [FOX41]

IMPORTANT: Third Annual Highlands Beer Festival. The only thing more important would be a Highlands Bourbon Festival. Get on this thing. [Consuming Lousiville]

Animal abuse is alleged at an area shelter that is not Louisville Metro Animal Services for a change. [WAVE3]

The Humana Foundation is pledging $600,000 in grants to help two Metro United Way charities reach their funding goals. The rest of our wealthy companies in town need to follow suit. [Business First]

Is your car more than ten-years-old? Then no title is required and no mandatory waiting period exists for it to be stolen and sold to a scrap yard with ease. No questions asked. [WHAS11]

Your local big town newspaper essentially ignores the mega scandals going down with a hospital in Owensboro. You should probably pay attention because it mirrors much of what is occurring with the University of Louisville’s planned merger. [Page One]

    “A Grant Is a Grant, Is a Grant, Etc.”

    Teacher #1: “Is this new UofL grant from the U.S. Department of Education for JCPS on the level? I haven’t trusted them since Felner, the Psycho Dean, had a similar kind of grant and embezzled it.”

    Teacher #2: “This is not a No Child Left Behind grant. JR says it will allow students to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and chant, ‘I can do it, I can go to college’.”

    Teacher #1: “In that case, why not just give the God damn grant money to the kids and their families?”

    If any of the allegations of abuse at Taylor Co. shelter are true – that’s horrific. But, just for some perspective – a “mass euthanasia” is 39 animals? LMAS kills that many on a daily basis. Hell, they often top 80 CATS in a single day, not counting the dogs.

    These LMAS stats are enough to turn even the soundest, most reasonable cat owner into a “hoarder.”
