TERRY MEINERS IS DOING HIS SHOW LIVE AT BEARNO'S by the Bridge, and I'll be joining him at 5 for a Farewell to Mandy event! Bryan will be there too, and we'd love for you to stop by for a hug and a goodbye. It's at the corner of Main and 2nd, and you can park across the street or under the YUM! Center. We'll be hanging around until 8ish. See you there!
KIDS AREN'T AS FAT. EXCEPT IN KENTUCKY The news is not all bad for the Commonwealth on childhood obesity, but it's not great. Kentucky is one of the many states who have held steady on childhood obesity rates, which is better then increasing. But some states are seeing a decrease in the rate of childhood obesity, which is where we all need to be. But hey, stopping the bleeding is progess!
BESHEAR HIRES ANOTHER POLITICAL CRONY. YAWN. Why is it that everyone gets all hot and bothered when it's revealed that politicians appoint people who help them to positions in government? It's happened again. And no one will care. Because Beshear is a Democrat. I wish the media would spend more time asking him why his political appointees gave made up information about Medicaid costs when the Request for Proposal for managed care went out. But hey don't care about that either.
THEY AREN'T SPYING ON US..OH WAIT...EXCEPT OUR EMAILS PrezBO yukked it up with Leno the other night and assured Jay that the government was NOT spying on Americans. But the NYTimes tells a different story, one that has the NSA checking ALL email communications or certain catchwords, names or email addresses. Well not ALL, just email going overseas. As far as we know. But right now, PrezBO doesn't have much credibility on the issue. Or basic coastal geography.
REMEMBER WHEN GEORGE W BUSH WAS STUPID? Everytime GWBush made any kind of verbal misstep, the media pounced on it with glee to prove how stupid he is. But the current POTUS goes on Jay Leno and says four totally dumbass things and the news media...ignored it. Shocking, I know.
DO YOU LIKE YOUR NEIGHBORS? I hope they fit the right criteria the government sets for diversity. Otherwise, will they tell you that you must move? Sounds cray cray, but read this.
I LOVE THE BOURNE MOVIES But Matt Damon's politics suck. And now he's proven himself to be a total hypocrite. Shocking. He pimps public schools for everyone...else. While putting his own kids in private schools. Do as I say, not as I do! That's the liberal mantra.
