BLUEGRASS POLITICS If you are glutton for punishment
YOU KNOW THAT SUPER DUPER RANKING KENTUCKY GOT FROM EDUCATION WEEK? Well, what does it really mean? I will break it down with Richard Innes from the Bluegrass Institute today at 10am. I will say this, it's not exactly time to rest on our laurels.
GOODBYE BOURBON BALL FRENCH TOAST When I came here to interview for this job, my now boss took me to Lynn's Paradise cafe for lunch. And for someone who didn't know anything about Louisville then and does not, that one restaurant captured a lot of the quirkiness that I love about this city. Certainly it is not alone in that, but when we had out of town guests, that's where we took all of them. Lynn's will be missed. It's always sad when a business abruptly closes that like too. It's like we never got to say goodbye, like I did to Stan's Fish Sandwich. Which I still miss, by the way.
HERE ARE THE RESTAURANTS WE TALKED ABOUT ON THE SHOW TODAY! I'll add links to the websites during the show. If they are in bold, click the name to get to the website.

LETTING THE NEXT CRISIS BUILD We are about to be treated to fingerpointing and likely more name calling as we approach the debt ceiling in about six weeks. Why? Because neither Republicans or Democrats are doing a damn thing about it. And we're supposed to be nervous and scared as the markets react negatively and people demagogue about defaulting on debt, etc, etc, etc. I'm so tired of it. Aren't you?
SAD NOTE OF THE DAY If you were one of 800,000 people to send Dalton Dingus a Christmas card in an effort to help him set a record for getting the most Christmas cards, sad news. He has passed.
ANOTHER MANDY FAVORITE BITES THE DUST I love Jackie Chan movies. Even the ones with Chris Tucker. But I am not going to pay to see another Jackie Chan movie, as I'm sure he wouldn't want any of my corrupt American dollars. Seriously, actors, shut your pie holes. I'm running out of people to watch. Thank goodness for Tom Selleck.
SHOULD THE NEWSPAPER BE HELD RESPONSIBLE? Remember that left wing rag who published the addresses of gun owners in New York? Well there has been a burglary at one of those homes and the thieves tried to steal an elderly man's gun safe. They failed, luckily. If I were this man, I'd sue the snot out of this paper. Just for fun.
FORGET ALEX JONES, WATCH BEN SHAPIRO AND PIERS MORGAN The righteously indignant and ill informed Piers Morgan gets absolutely schooled by Ben Shapiro. You will enjoy it. Watch it here.
