    Since the vast majority of employees ‘on the line’ at GE and Ford are products of Louisville’s [failed] public school system, could that abysmal educational program in this community have anything to do with the continued foul ups of its gradiates [sic] in putting bolts into holes and wing-nuts on the bolts — both at GE and Ford.

    If that’s the case, then Ford and GE are going to have to start importing more educated people from the Kentucky mountains and western Kentucky – where the public education is superior to Louisville’s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Unbelieveable.

    Your reference to the story of the B’boro road closure seriously makes me question your definition of “freaking out.” The story quotes 3 business owners in that corridor. Two of which understand the necessity of having this project completed. Further, the story was posted online yesterday, and there are ZERO comments posted online.
    These small businesses rely on passers by for their livelihood, and 10 days of rerouted traffic could really put a dent in their success….much the way a 10 day outage of the Internet would affect your mission. I bet you’d be freaking out at that point.

    You idiots have no common sense, do you? It’s a story that is raging on EVERY television station in Louisville. People are freaking out just as you are. Get a grip.

    I’m betting Jake and crew don’t care what you think.

    MT question is WHY does the LMEMS EMT not get to wear his uniform to a press conference about his job? WHY was NO ONE from LMEMS or the Mayor’s office not there to show support? WHY are they working the Paramedics and EMTs to exhaustion without so much as a pat on the back? Of course if we work them to the point they all quit or just plain fall down, it is easier to privatize and have another lucrative contract to grant.
