    Gee, I wonder how the government is going to make up for all those taxes they’ll be losing if land line telephones go away? If I remember right, the taxes were about the same as the phone bill, which is why I went with cable. One tax that used to really get me was for providing wiring for internet service to the wilds of America. Like, I’m so sure Helen. And, as a side note, police agencies only need a warrant for wire tapping land lines since cell phones are transmitted over radio frequencies.

    What politics does Ashley Judd have? Is it because she’s a dem?

    Is this a joke about Ashley Judd running for the Senate? I will never forget working for Tony Miller, the former Circuit Court Clerk, and people talking him into running against Ann Northup. I told him from the get go that he was not qualified. I still feel sorry for him and the way they suckered him into that race. Tony was a great Circuit Court Clerk and was always very receptive to my good government projects which were very successful. One day, he called me in his office and asked me to look into solving the social security underfunding problem. My mouth dropped to the floor. Ashley Judd is having people do the same thing they did to Tony, getting ready to feed her to the wolves so that they can have a candidate to run on the ticket. She needs to say thanks but no thanks.

    The downtown portion of this project is a crime against democracy. State and city leadership are intentionally distorting the financial trade-offs necessary to construct the widely unpopular downtown Ohio River Bridge Project. Divide the project, not the community.

    Ms. Michals: You’re (as usual) 100% correct. Mitch McConnell will eat her up and spit her out in the first month of her candidacy. She needs to go back to UofK with her UK T-short and ‘push-em-up bra’ and lead the cheering, before she’s made AN EVEN BIGGER FOOL OF.
