Sometimes They Come Back…

Anne Northup is our new national guardian against lead-laden Chinese toys?! Nooooooooo! The ex-congresswoman from Louisville, who has been out of the limelight since her 2006 defeat for re-election after 10 years in the U.S. House, is to be nominated as a commissioner on the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission, the White House announced Thursday […]

Lunchbox: Bridges and busing and whatnot

Building bridges: The construction of two new bridges is a step closer to reality (although still not really close) after the Metro Council passed a resolution moving the Ohio River Bridges Project forward. Last night, the council voted to give Mayor Jerry Abramson and Gov. Steve Beshear the authority to appoint a group that will […]

Speaking of klansmen — and hate groups in general — a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan is going door-to-door in Shepherdsville, leaving their propaganda fliers all over the place and not even getting charged with littering, solicitation or first degree douchebaggery (which is apparently not a crime).

This Bud’s For You, Stupid

Screw health care reform: How will Nobama keep the Black Panther and the Klansman from killing each other? Will they use beer cozies? Post-consumer, biodegradable cups? What about frosted mugs? Inquiring minds want to know!

Lunchbox: Moonshining

Bridge to somewhere: Metro Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh, D-9, is still fighting for her resolution that asks for more public hearings on the $4.1 billion Ohio River Bridges Project. The resolution was rejected in less than five minutes by the council’s transportation committee last week in favor of the resolution co-sponsored by Councilman Kevin Kramer, R-11, […]

O’Reilly Does The Math

The problem? Not sure who’s math he’s doing. (It’s NOT French math, damnit!) Who needs math when you’ve got a bajillion Polk awards!

Lunchbox: Follow the money

Big pay day: It turns out Metro Police Chief Robert White is receiving nearly $90,000 a year in extra pay on top of his annual base pay of $160,000, according to WAVE 3. Mayor Jerry Abramson apparently promised White the extra income in an effort to lure him away from his job in Greensboro, N.C., […]
