Many stories have been coming to light over the last few days so we will use this space to outline just a few of them.
Constable David Whitlock is in trouble yet again. Thanks to a story by WLKY's Andy Alcock WLKY, Whitlock is now being accused of sexually harassing a Denny's waiter. We can't make this stuff up folks. Actually we could but the truth is oh so much more endearing. In fact this is just one sample of the many charges of harassment by Whitlock. Stay tuned for much more I assure you.
Seems Mayor Greg Fisher can't even keep his own insiders on board with MSD. According to this story his latest Board appointee has withdrawn from consideration because he is worried he may actually have to do some work on the Board of MSD. CJ
Real-estate developer Marty Cogan, Fisher's latest hand picked MSD Board member has decided to take himself out of consideration based largely on the fact that he anticipates the board will have extra work to do next year, after the release of an investigation of MSD management and governance by Kentucky State Auditor Crit Luallen.
So what does he think does he believe he should be appointed to a Board without having to do any work? Well, yes probably since Abramson always told them what they will do and they really just follow directions.
So much for something different eh?
Finally, Occupy Louisville goes head to head with Light Up Louisville in Jefferson Square. WHAS.
Does anyone else have a problem with this? I certainly do. Jefferson Square is open to the public and I have a right to enjoy Light Up Louisville without having to deal with the chants and ignorance of Occupy Louisville protesters.
By all means guys have your protest, but do it somewhere else until after the ceremony. We just don't want to be bothered with your movement during a festive occasion. Considering stories like this one, Occupy Wall Street, I just don't think we really care right now about this. from the reports I have been receiving, and personal experience, it is time to move on.
See you next time folks.
