That School Board Race Will Get A Little Silly

July 19th, 2012 by jake · 5 Comments

Who will win the school board seat? David Jones or David Kaplan? Kaplan has the political network and experience and Jones has the money. Jones won’t take the time to get to know people and won’t take the right advice seriously. Kaplan gets frightened easily and runs in whatever direction his friends in Frankfort tell him to run.

How do you feel when a bunch of storytellers from some myth factory litter on your porch? Probably the same way the beer king feels. We think he should mail them back along with some pizza coupons and an invitation to buy beer. [Funtimes Here & Here]

We can think of ten thousand things more important to cover than this road diet non-story. [WHAS11]

    WHAS talk radio is ground hog day radio. Same topics over and over. Sadly, the audience they attrack eats it up.

    Listen to WHAS News promos now. There is NEVER promotion of local news, but always national political news. The pattern is usually Obama saying something followed by several politicians criticizing him, with perhaps a defense, and always ending with a critical comment aimed at Obama. The other day I heard one that ended with Romney being told “release your returns” and about choked. That has since been corrected to end with McCain saying Romney has nothing to cover up.

    It’s odd, but it’s there when you listen. Anyone else remember when they used to have local news, weather and traffic to promote?

    RE: WHAS Road Diet story

    That sushi joint was already planning to close before the road diet construction even started. I wish WHAS would STFU about this and stop trying to create a story where there isn’t one.

    From the Louisville Hot Bytes forum:

    “I just had dinner there and asked the owner about his plans to close. Although he was not happy with the road construction, that wasn’t the reason he was closing. The reason is the overall lack of business and he would close, construction or not. He was of the opinion that the location isn’t so good.”
