Futurist Beshear gets smacked by Future Shock
Editorial Comments: Kentucky entered the 21st Century on crutches. Without real leadership and a true vision of what the potential of the 21st Century held in store for our state, we became a state of ”walking wounded leaders.” The state political power structure was held captive by the impact of 9-11 in New York; the loss of ability to function during the last years of the Patton Administration; and the complete mishandling of the governor’s office during the Fletcher years.

Lexington Newspaper Poll Not Kind to Governor
Lexington Newspaper Poll Not Kind to Governor The Lexington Herald Newspaper recently ran an online poll as to how Governor Beshear was doing as governor.
