Houston, We Have Your Cliches

I watched three late local newscasts last night, and wondered what would have filled the time if it weren’t for UK’s big victory in Newark and the Bellarmine victory celebration on Sunday morning. This week, get set to endure plenty of cliches about Houston and aerospace, as Fox41′s Bennett Haeberle did leading off the...

Today, after confronting yet another situation in which a lax attitude toward ethics resulted in an embarrassing revelation, Fischer said he wants to make sure members of boards and commissions aren’t taking from the till of the organizations they serve.

This morning Mayor Greg Fischer came out to Jeffersontown to participate in the ribbon-cutting for an affordable housing complex for seniors, and had another opportunity to speak about his “silver tsunami.” That’s Fischer’s pet phrase he uses every time he has an opportunity to talk about efforts to attract businesses taking care of our...

A Final Look at the Surprising February Sweeps

Alby in Tokyo: Trying to be Normal

I shared a note from Albrecht Stahmer a while back. He’s the Louisville native now living in Tokyo, who also happens to be involved in bringing an NBA team to town. As you can read here, his perspective on the situation there is not so bad, and he’s certainly not panicked. And I’m hoping...
