Non-Shocker: Louisville Hit With Tolls In Perpetuity

March 13th, 2012 · 2 Comments

If you can afford to buy coffee this week, you can afford to give to the red cross for tornado relief efforts. Your help is sorely needed. [Red Cross]

Wow, Steve Nunn’s ex-wife sounds as bizarre as him. Now it’s easy to understand why everyone on his side is trying to profit from the death of Amanda Ross: they’re all batshiz. [H-L]

Hahaha! Tolls? They’re going to last forever. Literally. Even after the bridges are paid off. So the money can go in a “maintenance fund” or whatever. You get what you voted for, people. Permanent tolling of public, taxpayer-funded roads. [C-J/AKN]

Is this really a good idea? Retired prosecutors would have special privileges to carry concealed weapons anywhere in the state under a measure that has passed the House. [WKYT]

Surely you can imagine how comical a Rick Perry-Newt Gingrich dream ticket would be. We almost can’t breathe just thinking about it. [Wonkette]

Because it’s Frankfort, an illegal cockfighting ring continues to be ignored. A state government employee running half the operation is given the green light. And nutbags left and right are threatening us for daring to bring it up. [Page One]

That Wisconsin voter identification law a few mouth-breathers in Frankfort wish they could bring to Kentucky? A judge ruled it unconstitutional. Imagine that. [HuffPo]

There doesn’t appear to be consensus on teacher incentive pay so don’t hold your breath on such a thing happening in Kentucky at the moment. [Ryan Alessi]

Since the trend in government is to find wasted money – at least on the surface – the big four auditors are lobbying like crazy. [Reuters]

Vice President Joe Biden isn’t holding back when it comes to ripping apart the crazy things mouth-breathers have had to say lately. [Boston.com]

You can’t even go to Lexington these days without being assploded with a nail bomb or whatever. [WLEX18]

Read this story about the catholic church intimidating and putting legal pressure on an abuse victims’ group. [NYT]

A Fayette County corrections officer testified that she was repeatedly sexually harassed. This is the kind of muck that’s been covered up. [H-L]

A low-level leak of mustard agent was detected in a storage igloo, and unfiltered process water used to wash explosives out old conventional munitions made its way to the Blue Grass Army Depot’s general waste-water treatment plant. [Richmond Register]

    “Will Perry Pass the Palin Test?”

    Newt: “Rick, let me test your civic acumen. How many branches are there in US government?”

    Rick: “What’s ‘acumen’ mean, pardner? Anyway, I’m thinkin’ there are three.”

    Newt: “How’d you know?”

    Rick: “Wild guess, based on your number of wives.”

    Hmmm, I guess Greg Stumbo, a former county prosecutor will be able to carry while all the other legislators won’t be able too.

    Big Surprise.
