MSD Is Why Louisville Smells So Corrupt Lately

December 23rd, 2011 · 7 Comments

You have to wonder when someone will take on Gerald Neal and his mounting problems involving MSD. It doesn’t help that he shares office space with Zielke, either. He needs to retire from the state legislature or someone needs to run against him to retire him. [The ‘Ville Voice] We hear through the gayvine that […]

December 21st, 2011 · 7 Comments

This week brought terrific news from Owsley Brown Frazier in the form a $25 million gift to the University of Louisville. This should in no way overshadow that.

Meet The New Chief, Same As The Old Chief?

December 5th, 2011 · 3 Comments

Why is it, exactly, that Jim Ramsey never, ever has to answer for people repeatedly stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars on his watch? When this happens at other schools, the buck stops with the individual at the top and they take ultimate responsibility. He’s yet to do so. Ever. For any reason. [C-J/AKN] Will […]

Democrats Now Literally Get Away With Everything

October 14th, 2011 · 2 Comments

You can love organized labor or you can hate it but keeping its contract negotiations with city government secret is about as corrupt as corrupt can get. But what do you expect from your Metro Council? Jim King gave $30,000 to the very people who assaulted him (Okay, one of them died). David Tandy signed […]
