  • On the heels of Rand Paul's appearance on MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow show in which the New York Times said he "appeared uncertain about whether he would have supported forcing private businesses to desegregate in the 1960s, suggesting that might run afoul of his libertarian philosophy,"  yesterday the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate said, "I unequivocally state that I will not support any efforts to repeal the Civil Rights Act of 1964." Awesome--me too! I'm glad that's settled. [New York Times]
  • Only maybe its not? "While stressing that he abhors racism, Paul said in an interview last month with The Courier-Journal's Editorial Board that a restaurant or other enterprise with no government funding should be allowed to discriminate." [Courier-Journal]
  • "[Jerry] Abramson did not endorse in the primary, but now that Greg Fischer has won his party’s nomination, the mayor says he’s been meeting with the candidate to prepare for the general election." [The Edit]
  • "Residential pickup of yard waste and recycling in the Urban Services District -- the former city of Louisville -- will be delayed by one day for the rest of this week, according to Louisville Metro Division of Solid Waste Management." [Courier-Journal]
