Louisville continues a slow slide into the 19th century. Under the leadership of Mayor for Life/the Jerrycrat, Louisville has slipped behind nearly every major metro area in the country when it comes to public health. Ignorance prevails over reality for the city’s Metro Council.

They’re all rushing to explain away their failed predictions instead of just humbly admitting they were horribly mistaken. [Newsweek]
P.S. Could someone please do something controversial or questionable today? It’s a slowish news day. Come on, Frankfort folks, cause a scene.
