Go Ask Jim Ramsey About That Silly New “Study”

In about an hour, a bunch of people will be in the University Hospital auditorium for a presser.

Steve Beshear, Jack Conway, Greg Fischer, Jimbo Ramsey and others from UofL.

They’re taking part in a fancy news conference at 10:30 A.M.

Perfect opportunity for the mainstreamers to press Ramsey and crew after the main event over that silly report about how an NBA team would be disastrous for Louisville. Maybe find out why they’re so dead set against progress in Louisville.

P.S. A bit of a prediction: UofL will partner with Jewish. So shocking.

That sound you hear is Bob Gunnell being involved in yet another publicity stunt that attempts to kill all progress in Louisville.

It’s a shame that UofL has a hand in this. [WHAS11]

Oh, wait for it, wait for it… the Jeffersonville mayoral scandals are beginning to hit the AP wire. [More WHAS11]

Just a reminder that the housing market is not puppies and rainbows in Louisville. Foreclosures for Louisville homes are increasing despite a year of significant decreases in 2011. [Business First]

Details are expected later this week in the Harrison County Prosecutor’s case against five current and past leaders in Palmyra. Sounds like there’s some juicy drama about to drop in Southern Indiana. [WAVE3]

Is this the most hyped up promo John Boel has ever done? Trying his hardest to scare the bejeebers out of meemaws everywhere for something as stupid as whatever it is he’s hyping. [WAVE3]

Told ya so. The only two that count are the FBI and OAG, as EBEC is a joke. The FBI, Kentucky attorney general’s office and Kentucky Executive Branch Ethics Commission are investigating an allegation made more than a year ago that a former Beshear administration official pressured subordinates to contribute to the governor’s re-election campaign. [C-J/AKN]

Here’s a good look at how to tell one teeny tiny part of a story. And an example of how mainstream outlets often gloss over, well, everything. [WHAS11]
