LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: A Big Movie, Bibles, Bridges and Brains and Bull – and a Moose

If you’re going to threaten someone’s life, don’t leave it on their voice mail. Ghavami left several threats intended for a man from Louisville now living in California, as reported on WHAS.  If you’ve met him, you know Majid…
