  • "After being admitted to Petersburg, Kentucky’s Creation Museum as a ticketed, paying customer seeking to witness firsthand the power and glory of their 'Date Night,' it didn’t take long for the museum to show its true colors…When pressed on the issue, McDonald said that an 'un-Christian' couple like Joe and Brandon would upset the evening for everyone, and, as proof, the museum’s website explicitly stated that couples like Joe and Brandon would not be allowed entry. (For the record, it does not)." [LEO Weekly]
  • "Chris Thienenman's deal with the folks at Cracker Barrel has taken yet another twist. After jumping through flaming hoops for the neighbors, the city and the people running the company, Thieneman says the restaurant chain is now demanding city tax credits to build the project in Valley Station. If newly-elected Greg Fischer doesn't come of his wallet, the ol' hacks at Cracker Barrel will balk on the deal." [The Valley Report]
