What? Another investigative package from Eric Flack that barely tells half the story? Surely not! [WAVE3]

In January, an organization called The Family Trust Foundation of Kentucky asked for permission to file a “Brief of Amicus Curiae” (“friend of the court”) in the case of Bourke v. Beshear, a challenge to the Kentucky and federal laws which allow the state to ignore legal same-sex marriages performed elsewhere. U.S. District Court Judge John Heyburn granted the Foundation’s request and their brief was soon filed. [Joe Dunman]

Bend over and grab your ankles. You’ve seen how Fischer manages Metro Animal Services and every other bunch of leftover Abramson hacks. So you know this is going to be a disaster.

    “Good for UofL!”

    In the name of “fair & balanced” reporting, I want to commend the UofL researchers who are making such progress on lung cancer. I often criticize the U, but in this case, I can only applaud!

    Novena: We frequently (almost always) agree about the local ‘athletic club’. However, on this one I remain a skeptic. A 3 paragraph half dozen sentence report in Business First (which exists SOLELY due to its advertising revenue from the local ‘athletic club’) that a test has been ‘created’ by UofL professors to DETECT LUNG CANCER is NICE, BUT why wasn’t this on CBS, NBC and ABC and an announcement for the American Cancer Institute and verified by Sloan-Kettering, W.D. Anderson in Houston, the Cleveland Clinic and the Mayo Institute? Answer: Probably because it’s more local B.S. from the ‘athletic club.’

    “To Highlander”

    Interesting thought, ‘ole boy. You make a very intriguing observation. The local “athletic club” is known to use PR on steroids. So, who knows–you might be right.
