Message: If Louisville is such a bad place to you, then seriously,
move back to eastern Ky. You are obviously a redneck cunt and your
family tree is straight up. I lived in Morehead for years, so I know
how inbred you rerards are. Your people are retards.
The Kentucky Coal Association freaks out and goes crazy on anybody who dares question mountaintop removal.
So what’s the latest?
A super-expensive “white paper” attacking the Sierra Club.

Bill Bissett wishes desperately that he could be accepted by everybody as a non-spinster. But. Uh. As long as the KCA is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on crap like this? We’ll continue to believe they’re full of it.
These boxes are popping up all over Metro Government offices lately:
How long will it take for Metro employees to receive the begging emails?
Yep, this is the change you got from Greg Fischer’s Metro Animal Services.
One can only imagine the kind of change Louisville could actually accomplish if Greg Fischer and Sadiqa Reynolds would bother working with people instead of attacking and belittling them for expressing concern. These donation boxes and pleas for assistance wouldn’t be necessary.
What was that, Greg, about Louisville being the most compassionate city in the country? What was that, again, about Louisville being the safest city in the nation? Quit with the damn buzz words. You looked and sounded like an imbecile while 95% of the city was stressed and saddened over yesterday’s tragic mess of death. For the sake of this city and the people who are hurting, quit with the buzz words. [Wake Up, Greg]
Everybody is apparently pissed over whatever Christopher 2X said on the teevee. [FOX41]
Morgan McGarvey will win this race with the endorsements his daddy got him. Without daddy, Crit and Jack wouldn’t know who Morgan is. [C-J/AKN]
Do you have faith that “Metro leaders” will be able to put a plan into place to stop all the violence in Louisville? [WAVE3]
From the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet: As mandated by the Kentucky Legislature, uninsured motorists across the Commonwealth will begin receiving notices in June that registrations for their personal vehicles will be canceled if they do not obtain required insurance or show proof of existing insurance.

West End residents are less than happen about the spree of recent shootings, to say the least. But this doesn’t mean the West End is the only place crimes are being committed. [WHAS11]
Louisville is apparently the 18th most miserable city in the United States of America. Are you surprised? [Business Insider]
WLKY’s teevee people – since it’s hype week – say they have: “uncovered serious gaps in metro Louisville’s first-response system where hundreds of people in dire medical emergencies did not get help in time to save them.” Forgive us for being skeptical about anything Neal Richmond has to say and any blame he places on the Fire Department. He’s not in Louisville often enough to know what’s going on. [WLKY]
Read this story from June 2000. You’ll have Butchertown-Swift flashbacks like woah. [Pulitzer]
Almost nobody is going to go vote on Tuesday. All those television advertising dollars? Completely wasted. [H-L]
Why is it Boy Scouts get to camp out all over the place but the city’s homeless aren’t permitted to do so? [C-J/AKN]
The economy is still struggling to gain momentum, though long-term trends remain expansionary, the Conference Board declared, as it reported that its index of leading economic indicators dipped in April for the first decline since September. [Business First]
Will anybody ride their bike in to work today? You know, the handful of people who have jobs? Or are they all afraid of getting shot up? Maybe they’re just afraid of dying on the 2nd Street Bridge or Lower Brownsboro? [WFPL]
It’s been a couple months since Greg Fischer accepted a bogus award honoring Louisville’s alleged loads of compassion:
We’re still wondering when that compassion will be exercised by his administration when it comes to whistleblowers, unwanted animals, MSD, LWC, the homeless and everyday taxpayers looking for promised transparency.
Here’s what police can’t tell you about this case: they believe Gregory Holt’s murder was in retaliation for an attempted murder the previous evening – by his mother. And drugs are allegedly involved. A lot of drugs. Seems the prosecutor’s office has threatened some officers for trying to conduct a deeper investigation, so, uh, it’s time to call the CA out. Mainstreamers need to a dig a bit more deeply for the real story. [FOX41]
There’s a lot of talk in the local press about ending child abuse. But don’t forget one of the biggest childhood problems – hunger! Donate to Dare to Care. [Click Here]
How badly will the Time Warner transition from Insight hurt? Will lubrication be necessary for customers in Louisville? [H-L]
The Jockeys Guild is melting down over Robby Albarado’s situation. His suspension stays until the case is over. [WHAS11]
HAHAHA, have you seen this latest mess in the First District Metro Councilcritter race? It is hilarious. [WFPL]
Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas criticized the behavior of a few of his peers Wednesday, saying the actions of a few recent Kentucky Derby winners have tarnished the reputation of his profession. [WLEX18]
You can’t even go to Waterfront Park these days without having your car burgled or whatever. [WAVE3]
What exactly is the point of destroying this reporter’s cell phone if all data is allowed to be retrieved beforehand? Why not just give it back to him? What a waste of time and taxpayer dollars in Indiana. [C-J/AKN]
Remember Christina Gilkey? She’s the school board president in Clark County (Indianner) and is involved in the selection of the next failed superintendent (let’s get real, here). She was one of the few honest folks there in 2009 and one of the people who tried to do the rightthing. Not even she can save that district – that’s how much of a disaster it is. [More WFPL]
In Louisville, federal agencies have a relatively small presence compared to other major cities, according to an analysis of recent employment data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. [Business First]
The amount of unnecessary hype in this story is so thick you’ll gag. Property reassessment notices went out a few weeks ago for metro Louisville, but the rate of those reassessments is the lowest it’s been in years. [WLKY]
Thomas Massie seems to have a problem with Kentucky Open Meetings laws and the Office of the Attorney General is sniffing around. [Page One]
