It was “the good war.” That’s how America portrayed its involvement in World War II: a righteous struggle of freedom against tyranny. But America in the 1940s had legal restrictions denying its black citizens the vote, and segregated them in rundown neighborhoods, poor schools and low-paying jobs. Black GIs were assigned to building roads...

The Brothers Size, currently being performed at Actors Theatre, is promoted as a “lyrical tale of brotherly love (that) explores the tension between fear and desire on the elusive road to freedom.” That is accurate, perhaps, but it doesn’t prepare you for the reality of the play’s raw emotions, street language and battle of...

by Jake Curtis I awoke on Saturday morning, November 15th, with what felt like a helicopter buzzing in my head.  My friend dragged me out the door and we went to grab breakfast at a crisp 9:00 AM.  After that, I meandered around, reveling in the sunlight and wondering what I was to do...

Dick Wilson and I can’t figure out how many years we’ve been doing the Breakfast of Champions, but it’s somewhere between five and eight years. We’re guessing. We finished our 2014 series yesterday, with GLI president and former Rusty Satellite Show guest Kent Oyler giving the group a positive message about the future of...

Our Journal: LUKE: Entry for 11/6 thru 11/7. This week was a short week so my teachers see this and decide “We need to give them enough work for a 5 day week isntead of 3.” So I’ve been very busy with not only schoolwork but also this is a fairly important time for my game....

by Jake Curtis Local Louisville hardcore outfit Xerxes has been a mainstay in the punk scene for about five years. Since its beginning, starting out as a five-piece, the band has changed drastically from its loud, raw brand of hardcore to a catchier, darker and noisier blend of punk and 80’s Goth rock.  The...

Journal, Day 7. LUKE: School was one of those Mondays that drag on quite a while but not much work. Though when I see it’s almost November I can’t really believe it. I’m not that normal in that I don’t really want to grow up but it’s a part of life and there is definitely...

Day 5: Saturday in the Ballpark

Our seats at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium are on the 50-yard line, way up in the UPS Flight Deck. If you like the nuances of the game, the Xs and Os,  seeing pass patterns as they develop, they’re great seats. There’s also a wonderful vista, with a view of the city from Iroquois Park...
