What ELSE Can Go Wrong In Louisville This Week?

July 12th, 2011 · 8 Comments

This is the most ridiculous shiz I’ve ever heard. A law firm saying that inbreeding skews data linking mountaintop removal to birth defects. Worse than Bob Farmer. It’s enough to make us hope every mouth-breather in Appalachia succumbs to Darwin’s theory. Jesus. [WFPL] Yesterday marked the 69th day of Jack Conway’s refusal to deal with […]

Which Is Worse? Sypher Scandal Or Poison Water?

December 21st, 2010 · 4 Comments

Chromium in Louisville’s drinking water exceeds safe limits. Yeah, perfect water, all right. I’ll still drink the shiz out of it, so, take this complaint with a grain of salt. [FatLip] Or maybe not. Cause this chromium mess is jacked up. Look where Louisville falls on the charts. [Environmental Working Group] Have you read this […]

East Market Street Is Still Exploding, We’re Giddy

March 10th, 2010 · 1 Comment

What’s with Rand Paul and David Adams flip-flopping 24/7? What happened to the debate anywhere, any time mantra? Hypocrisy, thy name is Ro… Rand. Ignoring the women of Louisville won’t get you anywhere as a U.S. Senate candidate. [Page One] Here’s mayoral candidate Tyler Allen on TARC’s first public meeting. [Tyler for Mayor] Tuesday Sunday […]

Mayoral Candidates On Local Food Economy

February 17th, 2010 · 7 Comments

Greg Fischer and Tyler Allen spoke about the importance of the local food economy: Really? Making Louisville the national leader in local food economies? I love ambition, but… have you ever tried to buy produce in the West End? It’s nigh impossible. And I’m not even sure what Allen said, aside from “providing incentives.” (In […]

Monday Morning of Ignoring Our Crime Problem

January 4th, 2010 · 9 Comments

Louisville business owners say they want a strong, risk-taking mayor. And I especially love that Jonathan Blue took a swipe at Mayor McCheese. Guess it’s time to send him a thank-you gift for making the local business rag fun for a day. [Business First] Don’t you love that Insight is going to charge you $3 […]

It’s Time to Wake Up to Some Time Wasters

December 2nd, 2009 · 5 Comments

Something about this “green” development in Las Vegas doesn’t smell quite right. But it’s marvelous to look at. [Fast Company] It won’t top Louisville’s green movement of redeveloping old, neglected properties. Speaking of such, the Green Building Gallery will host Gibbs Rounsavall’s ‘Unearth the Divine’ beginning Friday. [Green Building Gallery] Want a gift this holiday […]

Going the Distance on Liquor Law

September 17th, 2009 · 11 Comments

Seems pretty simple. St. Matthews has a law requiring that new liquor stores must be at least 700 feet from existing liquor stores. And as you can see from this picture, the new Liquor Barn under construction on Shelbyville Road is pretty darn close to the Beverage Warehouse operation across the street. The Beverage Warehouse […]
