A Jefferson County grand jury Tuesday declined to indict the defendants dubbed the “Misidentified Four” who claimed they were the victims of shoddy identification procedures when arrested on the night of the mob violence in Louisville.

All the sudden Adam Edelen can make demands in this case but can’t in Montgomery County? Proof Edelen truly loves to talk out of both sides of his mouth and feed excuses through his spokesperson.

Greg Fischer’s office and the Louisville Metro Housing Authority plan to apply for a $500,000 federal grant to demolish the largest remaining public housing complex in the city.

    “Crime, Poverty & Fischer”

    If Fischer wants to protect the wealthy, he should not tear down the lone remaining housing project. As we have known at least since Aristotle, poverty breeds crime. Without decent housing, the problem only becomes worse. And he should now tell the rich to board their car windows with steel.

    An honor for Bill Clinton for his distinguished service to golf????????? This guy was notorious for not counting all his strokes (on the golf course [as well as with non-wifey women]). The PGA needs to take their trophy for his distinguished service (at least far as ‘golf is concerned’ and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.
