    When the Louisville Mayor (historically) has nothing going for the City other than ‘pap and pablum’ then it’s essential that the ‘rumor-mill’ be utilized CONSTANTLY to make the public think that there’s REALLY BIG STUFF in the offing. This ‘crap’ has been going on since Merry Jerry was around (1985) and is primarily orchestrated by the PR stunts of the SAME PR staff led by the same PR ‘guru.’ In other words — when nothings going on of any REAL value — then put the ink in the press and tell the lazy public that we’re a ‘world class city’ or that the ‘university’ is in the ACC or that only really ‘with-it’ cities have bicycle lanes cause traffic havoc (because the bicyclists refuse to honor traffic laws while driving in the traffic-laden streets) or like hinting ‘big things or coming.’ It’s all a little old and a little over-used — but that’s the way this place operates, because the public is PRIMARILY asleep as the ‘beer truck rolls down Lombard Hill without a driver.’

    “Only Crazies Can Miss W”

    One can hardly believe they miss Bush.
    I still would like to kick him in the tush.
    He blew a surplus and brought a recession.
    His trumped-up wars were a hellish procession.
    If the crazies think Obama is much worse, They are afflicted with the Devil’s curse.
    The only demon worse than ‘W’ is a big dick.
    His name is Cheney and he makes us all sick.
