Fancy Farm 2012: Whole lot of smoke. Very little fire
Sen. Mitch McConnell set the tone for political speeches.
Fancy Farm 2012: Whole lot of smoke. Very little fire

(Fancy Farm KY, August 4, 2012) – The great majority of the content of the speeches at the 132nd Fancy Farm Picnic can be summed in four words: “They bad. We good.”

With the exception of Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes whose speech was so red meat free that even the most vociferous hecklers made only half hearted efforts and local candidates who took their first appearance at the political stump speak to introduce themselves, the other speeches shed little light on what is going on in Frankfort and Washington.

Twilight Zone: the lost episode - Kentucky Fights to Define Its Future

(Fancy Farm, KY. August 4, 2012) -Speeding along a two lane country back road, past large fields of burnt corn and soybeans, an aging school bus with fading yellow paint flaking off races past by a solitary figure.

A tall man, hands crossed before him, dressed in a black suit with a thin 1950’s style black tie, he watches sadly as the school bus, letters down its side spelling out “Kentucky’s Future”, careens down the old blacktop highway.

With eyes that have traveled up and down the river of time, the lone figure comments slowly on the scene unfolding before him.

“Somewhere in the realm of reality, at a crossroads of common sense and ignorance, a busload of leaders struggle to define their past, present, and future.

With the American economy down and looking worse each year, can we as a civilization pretend “all is calm” when in fact strong forces of nature are moving to rearrange wind, rain, water, and heat patterns?

Obituary: the Tragic Death of the Louisville Courier Journal
Obituary: the Tragic Death of the Louisville Courier Journal
(Murray, KY - June 15, 2012) - The once proud voice of investigative and courageous journalism for much of Kentucky’s 20th century, gasped its last air at a Five Star gas station in this far western Kentucky town. It was a typical early summer night as the continuous passersby ignored the day’s breaking news and analysis available for a dollar.
