Who’s the Most Interesting of Them All? – Rusty’s People

I asked my friend Jason Smith to put together a little movie showcasing all of the photos I’ve taken of guests on the Rusty Satellite Show in the last two years, since we’re celebrating 100 episodes of the podcast. Of course, I didn’t know how much work was involved. But here it is. The quality of some of the shots is poor – that’s my fault. And there are two people in the video who don’t belong – they weren’t on the show. And I know I missed getting at least one of the guest’s photo in the show. But…


Have a Rusty Little Christmas

It’s three days until Christmas, and I’ve only got a few more gifts to get. I found the perfect time for shopping this weekend. I showed up at Target on Saturday night. It wasn’t crowded at all. First, I figured the whole data breach scare would keep a lot of paranoid shoppers away from that store. Then I went during a tornado/thunderstorm warning, about 10 p.m. Those two factors combined to create a situation in which I had the place almost to myself. I left in time to pop into Dick’s Sporting Goods just before it closed at 11. Of…

The Price of Murdering Your Own Baby

  Louisville Woman, Jessica Price,  accused of birthing her baby in the restroom of a Kohl’s department store and disposing of the child in a garbage can was placed under house arrest until her trial. Judge Olu Stevens, a well known Judge in Louisville, granted the bond reduction. Stevens said he allowed the motion because Price is indigent and has no prior criminal history. Price is now under home incarceration and she will ironically serve it at her parent’s home in Shepherdsville. Judge Stevens also ordered Price to stay away from children, as well as take her prescribed medication and…

Princess of Sylmar

The Long-Shot “Princess of Sylmar” ran amazingly to win the $1 million Kentucky Oaks on Friday at Churchill Downs. She is one of four fillies trained by Todd Pletcher and this 38-1 horse upstaged the 3-2 favorite Dreaming of Julia. This puts Pletcher in the mix for a weekend sweep Saturday in the Kentucky Derby, where he has a record-tying five entries – including Verrazano. A slow starting Dreaming of Julia lagged behind before recovering in the stretch to finish fourth. By then, Princess of Sylmar was amazing a crowd of 113,820 with her third win in four starts this…

Louisville found a different way to lose at Notre Dame!

  Spoiler alert……….Louisville Lost! After losing by 10 points or more in its three games since 2007, including an overtime loss two years ago, the Cardinals squandered an eight-point lead in the final minute of regulation before losing 104-101 in five overtimes Saturday night. Louisville coach Rick Pitino said it was a typical Notre Dame-Louisville game as it marked the sixth time in the last eight meetings that the game went beyond regulation. But it had never gone more than two overtimes, going that long twice previously. The game turned out to be the longest game in Big East regular-season…

B is for Burglar

Did you hear that Larry Bisig, resident of Bonnycastle, is starting an email and text messaging service in an effort to ‘disseminate information about public safety in the area?’ He says that it is prompted by  a recent increase in burglaries in this Louisville area and that he needs other residents to join him to be successful. He’s also distributing stickers that have the letter “B” on them — for ‘Bonnycastle’ (or Bisig!) but really anyone in the Highlands area is welcome to have them, he said. The idea is that  residents and vendors put them on their cars….and here is…

Bourbon stirred with a Cigar and mixed with a Gun

This was too good to pass up without writing about. I received an invite for an evening of cigars, bourbon, beer, food, music, guns, and more. It’s this Saturday, June 30th from 6pm to 10pm join at TG&G for Smokin Barrels. Maybe it’s because I am not originally from Louisville but Bourbon and Guns aren’t the first combination that comes to mind. The invitation went further and invited me to come see Louisville’s favorite indoor gun range and training center, and tour their brand new 10,000 square foot Airsoft Arena. Experience and sample cigars from the hottest boutique cigar company on…
