    Who in God’s name is this guy with his “compassionate city” malarky? It’s hard to believe that his crap wasn’t invented by a couple of Fishy’s predecessors like Mayors Happy Pants or Arm’weak.’ It fits their M.O. perfectly. Set up a non-calcuable but ‘wonderfully nice’ goal (“most compassionate city”) then go about spending much of your time proclaiming you’re achieving it (ignoring completely the murder rate and the lousy public school education product, or the plight of the state pension mess, etc. — then find some goofy magazine or on-line prop to vote you in — and WHAMMO we won. This kind of B.S. and a dime used to get you a cup of coffee, but now it won’t even by the sugar to put in the coffee.

    Extend the Agreement with Cordish!…..Who didn’t know that would happen. Why not END the Agreement and open it to Local Stakeholders offering them the same benefits that Cordish has gotten. Local participation would be more solid and dedicated to the flavor and fabric of Louisville!
    Give some of that FREE Money to the Local Creative Biz folks and see what happens.

    Chief: The Kordashians own it and they keep it, because you can’t kick Jesse James out of town when the townies are owned by Jessie. Mayor Happy Pants continue what Mayor Arm’weak’ started. Why should it end? It’s been terrific. The moving van business to and from Kordashia has tripled since Arm’weak’ gave the store away.
