Hilarious New UofL Board Members…

Maybe John Schnatter can give everyone free helicopter rides.

Way To Go, WDRB, With Suicide Hype

IF YOU ARE FEELING SUICIDAL OR NEED HELP: 1-800-273-8255

If Louisville media hasn’t yet learned how to cover suicide attempts, it never will.

It’s always going to hype the living shit out of them as if they’re entertainment.

Check out what they spread of a guy standing atop a highway sign as he SLIT HIS FUCKING WRISTS:


FROM WDRB

Unreal.

Hyping that as if it’s entertainment. Offering no resources. Trying to behave as if they’re as terrible as WHAS. What the hell, Bill Lamb?

What a disgraceful, dangerous shitshow.

IF YOU ARE FEELING SUICIDAL OR NEED HELP: 1-800-273-8255

NOTE: Yes, it’s clear that WAVE and other stations did the same thing. But WDRB has worked hard the past couple years to develop a kind of credibility stations like WHAS11 haven’t had in seven or eight years. And WDRB has a history of not hyping the shit out of people trying to kill themselves as it is happening. When the local media leader screws up this badly, it’s on them. There’s no minimizing it.

Wanna Buy The ‘Ville Voice?

I’ve toyed with it for a while and have received tons of pushback from friends and colleagues.

But when have I ever let something like that stand in my way? Let’s test the waters.

If you’re interested, I’m open to offers.

Hollar at me.

Only if you’re serious.

Am awaiting comment from JCPS officials, et al.

Since claims of racism are pretty severe, surely someone will chime in soon instead of allowing this to fester.

This Probably Deserves A Caption Contest

While everybody is mad at Donna Hargens, the latest hot mess (just like her two predecessors we helped run off) of a Jefferson County Public Schools superintendent, I thought it’d be a great idea to share this photo:

Donna and Jimbo Ramsey. Peas in a pod. Birds of a feather. Folks with horrible judgment and lots of rich friends who keep them in their high-paying gubmint jobs. You get it.

You’re welcome!

Racist Republican Pushes Confederate Fantasy

TL;DR: Another racist is freaking out, thinks he can rewrite history.

Remember racist Republican loon Everett Corley/Corley Everett/whatever name he’s decided to go by?

He’s letting his half-literate, racist flag fly high these days.

Way to go, Republicans, for not shutting this cretin down. The more the people of your party (same for the Democrats in Frankfort) justify racism, the more you get labeled as racists.
