16 Bad Movies

Maybe you’ve seen Facebook notes where your friends have to seemingly instantaneously come up with five, ten, sixteen, or even twenty movies that they know, love, or remember. Let’s turn this on its head, shall we? How about sixteen movies that you dislike, or hate, or there’s no redeeming the time and/or money spent watching them. Here’s my list: “Untraceable” – Diane Lane and Collin Hanks couldn’t save this torture porn masquerading as a drama. “Running Scared” – A movie so bad that Entertainment Weekly said “Paul Walker deserves better. The only reason to watch this is to see everything…

Statewide Tobacco Ban

The anti-smoking forces are looming over Kentucky’s civil rights like the Death Star over Alderaan once again. The Courier-Journal is reporting that a bill proposing a statewide tobacco ban is now before the Kentucky legislature. I oppose any attempts to curtail tobacco usage, even though I don’t even smoke, myself (aside from an occasional fine cigar after a good meal or a puff of my pipe whilst striking a Sherlock Holmes-esque pose at my fireplace mantle), mainly because I tend to oppose any attempts to curtail people doing whatever they want to do within the law. I repeat, within the…

Gov Gov-Who’s gonna Be Gov?

Well, the hijinks in the Kentucky Governor’s race have officially begun, and not a moment too soon! After a down period following the November general elections, I’ll wager most political junkies in Kentucky are waiting with bated breath for the race that seems to be shaping up. At least one major national publication calls the race the one to watch in 2011. And that’s not just in Kentucky-they chose it over all other races in the country.  Now,being an off year, that’s not tough to understand since no other major national races will be contested, and it could very well…

Kentucky Senate Passes Another Abortion Bill

On Thursday, the Kentucky Senate approved yet another bill that will make it more difficult for women to obtain abortions.The bill now goes to the House. It expands Kentucky’s “informed consent” law to require an ultrasound 24 hours before an abortion may take place. Currently, information about the procedure has to be given to the patient twenty-hour hours beforehand. This is a popular tactic among pro-life activists, one among many. Others include the parental consent for women under the age of eighteen  and requiring women to get the approval of two doctors. The ultrasound is unnecessary for first-trimester abortions–the vast…

‘Hornet’ May Not See a Lot of ‘Green’

There’s a reason this was released in January… Starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz, Edward James Olmos, Christoph Waltz, and Tom Wilkinson. Directed by Michael Gondry Ouch. This one was near painful. For those not in the know, “The Green Hornet” was an old-time radio show that ran from 1936-1952 and started a string of serials (old time short movies) as well as a 1966 TV series that starred Bruce Lee as Kato, the assistant to crime-fighting newspaper publisher Britt Reid. That’s as much as this movie has to do with the original storyline. Seth Rogen is Britt Reid,…

Non-Profits for Profits

You don’t have to grow a small business alone in Louisville, KY–in my opinion it would be foolish to think that you can do everything alone, especially when you don’t have to.  Last Fall I discovered two hidden gems in Opportunity City both of which are extraordinarily special in regards to what they do for our community and what they can do for you.  These two facilities that I speak of are Custom Quality Services and Harbor House. Custom Quality Services is a 180,000 sq. ft. behemoth facility located in the Portland neighborhood of Louisville, KY.  You’ll need a golf…
