Kevin Cosby wrote in a now famous editorial in the Courier-Journal, the one that sparked what would become a $100 million investment, the area needed a few wins. That sequence of events is now the stuff of history. How Cosby wrote the editorial, then Passport CEO Mark Carter read it, then called Mayor Greg Fischer on a Sunday with the idea.
