  • "Calling Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia 'ground zero' for prescription drug abuse, White House drug czar R. Gil Kerlikowske said reducing the epidemic will require a greater focus on prevention and treatment — and President Barack Obama's budget request contains more money for both." [Courier-Journal]
  • "A Louisville Metro Police officer shot and killed a dog Wednesday evening while chasing a burglary suspect in the Shawnee neighborhood of west Louisville." [Courier-Journal]
  • "Last we heard of Rick Pitino extortionist Karen Sypher's legal counsel, she was performing oral sex on him in his office. But that lawyer testified against her in her trial, so things weren't working out so well there. Her new legal team's public face is James Faller of U.S. Justice Watch, which appears to be a Twitter account and not an LLP. Faller, who does not appear to be an attorney, is too busy lawyerin' to do the work expected of a lawyer. As is Sypher's actual attorney, David Nolan. A tipster alerts us to this footnote from US v. Sypher, available here..." [Deadspin]
