  • "Defending Louisville Metro Councilwoman Judy Green against two ethics complaints has cost taxpayers $21,832 during the first three months of the year — and the total is about to go." [Courier-Journal]
  • "The Chronicle of Higher Education has been evaluating the education levels of state lawmakers in the United States. The state with the most college-educated lawmakers is California, with 90 percent. New Hampshire, with 53 percent, has the least. The national average is around 75 percent, slightly lower than Kentucky’s 77 percent." [WFPL]
  • "The Southern Baptist church is the second-biggest church in America (after Catholics), and the biggest church of all down South. Meaning that it also has thoroughly racist roots! And now, they're ready to put a black guy in charge. *Tear.*" [Gawker]
