Meet The New Mayor, Same As The Old Mayor

April 28th, 2011 · 5 Comments

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 [...]

Shame On Us For Thinking Fischer Was Serious

March 28th, 2011 · 17 Comments

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 [...]

Let’s Flip-Flop Everything All Day Just Because

March 25th, 2011 · 13 Comments

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 [...]

Maybe Things Aren’t Going So Swell For Fischer

March 24th, 2011 · 4 Comments

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 [...]

FACT: WE ARE PISSED OFF TODAY

March 23rd, 2011 · 8 Comments

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.

Oh, Butchertown…

January 26th, 2011 · 4 Comments

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.

Mayoral Scandal & Bad U.S. Senate Ads = Blechhh

Jack Conway was on Hardball with Chris Matthews last night. Check the segment out. Jack got his rear end chapped by Tweety. [Page One] Like we told you yesterday, Hal Heiner is calling on Greg Fischer to release any documents he’s got regarding Jackie Green’s endorsement. Unfortunately for Fischer, this could be bad news legal [...]

You Just Can’t Have It Both Ways, Crescent Hill

September 23rd, 2010 · 39 Comments

Isn’t it cute how some folks in Crescent Hill complain non-stop about horrible cell phone reception but lose their shiz when someone tries to resolve the problem? WTF is wrong with building a cell phone tower off Frankfort Avenue? How is it bad for everyone in the neighborhood? It’s going up on quite possibly the [...]

BOZA Selective When It Comes To Following Law

September 20th, 2010 · Comments Off

Last week, the Board of Zoning Adjustments got hit with yet another lawsuit for what can only be classified as stupid behavior on behalf of Jerry Abramson. Here’s a reminder, in case it’s already slipped your mind: Seems like it was just a few weeks ago when we last discussed the BOZA-Butchertown-Swift-Metro Government mess. Remember [...]
