  • "Mr Paul's bill [to cut $500 billion out of the 2011 federal budget] is a juvenile, irresponsible stunt. For most of his proposed cuts, he hasn't put in the minimal work necessary to make any rational decisions about what programmes should be cut, and what shouldn't; he hand-waves towards 'pro rata cuts' without thinking through what that means. Those of his cuts which are specific betray a callow, politically-minded populist anti-intellectualism." [The Economist]
  • "After ongoing problems at Louisville Metro Animal Services, interim Director Wayne Zelinsky resigned effectively immediately this morning. Debbie Fox, Deputy Director of MetroSafe, has been named the new interim director of Louisville Metro Animal Services by Mayor Greg Fischer following Zelinsky’s departure." [LEO Weekly]
  • "Gov. Steve Beshear today joined Mayor Greg Fischer, other community leaders and executives of Dharma Construction Services to announce the company will locate its headquarters operation to Louisville. The move will create 41 new, professional jobs and will entail a more than $2.3 million investment in the Commonwealth." [LouisvilleKY.gov]
  • "Heine Brothers is taking a leap forward in their quest to fill your need for coffee, wonderful coffee, no matter what part of town you’re in. The next neighborhood they are going to call home? Schnitzelburg." [Consuming Louisville]
