Does Louisville really need a “director of performance improvement” to be hired by Greg Fischer? At the tune of $112,000 per year? She’s supposed to “bring the best of private sector accountability, transparency and efficiency to metro government.” This story reads like a straight-up press release. [C-J/AKN] Here’s Jim Ramsey complaining about budget cuts. He […]

Remember JBS Swift? Yeah? Check this out: After watching the video, officials at Pleasanton, Calif.-based Safeway said they had stopped purchases from its supplier, JBS Swift, which distributes pork from the Iowa company, until an investigation into the conditions shown on the video can be completed. “Safeway does not tolerate animal abuse of any kind […]

How jacked up is Metro Government? So jacked that it can’t keep track of what paperwork for grants it has and has not received. You can thank Jerry Abramson’s corrupt and disastrous misadministration for that. [C-J/AKN] Looks like “Tan Lines” is getting lots of national attention. Thank goodness folks are filming movies in Kentucky. [indieWIRE] […]

For the 30th day in a row (yesterday) Republican Party of Kentucky Chairman Steve Robertson is questioning Jack Conway: “It is neither mean nor out of bounds for any Kentuckian to question how the Attorney General conducts himself when he learns a drug investigation has been compromised,” said Robertson. “And frankly, for the father of […]

What was that, again, about me “making things up,” LMAS apologists? I told you so. The city is in talks with the Kentucky Humane Society to take over adoptions at Metro Animal Services. [Dan Klepal] Stop us if you’ve heard this one before… a Dismas House worker was arrested after trying to steal two dogs […]

Haha, shame on us for thinking Greg Fischer was serious about listening to the citizens of this great city we call home. Turns out he ditched his meeting in Butchertown to go to the Bellarmine game and has yet to reschedule. Imagine that. Please accept our apologies for giving him the rare benefit of the […]

Today’s roundup/update thingy is coming at the end of the day. Because, well, let’s get real… SOMEBODY spent too much time outside walking a dog. What was that, again, about Louisville being the 16th-largest city in the United States? HAHAHA. 16th with a bullet, maybe! Right. The latest census data say we’re 27th. Thank god […]

Neighbors are upset that sirens took more than an hour to sound after the ammonia leak at Swift yesterday. Count us as still pissed. We thought it’d be a cold day in hell before we thought Jerry Abramson’s administration was better than Greg Fischer’s… but… well… it’s pretty dang cold today. [WAVE3] Check out the […]

This JBS Swift bullshiz? And MetroSafe saying there’s nothing to see here? That’s bogus. Third time in three weeks that something near-disaster has occurred and Metro Government has played pat-a-cake. WHEN WILL THIS CITY GET ANSWERS, DAMNIT? It’s safe to start putting blame at the feet of Greg Fischer.

HAHAHA. It would be a lot more funny if PETA wasn’t a miserable failure and/or had an actual movement on the local level that it could engage for events like this. At least we can laugh at the pictures and envision the ripe spell of roasting pig guts and fecal matter.
