  • LEO Weekly's Jonathan Meador has some thoughts on University of Louisville President Jim Ramsey’s editorial in yesterday's Courier-Journal: "in 630 words, the president of the state’s city’s flagship public university demonstrates amazing rhetorical flexibility and ignorance of current economic events, giving simultaneous rim-jobs to himself, U of L, the city’s power brokers and their patented unified theory of bullshit that keeps the Great Consuming Electorate from thinking too hard about the hidden costs of building a $238 million pleasure dome that merely creates low-paying, seasonal service sector jobs while Louisvillians a mile west of 9th Street lucky enough to be employed cannot afford market rate rents."
