A self-styled human rights activist drove her car onto a half marathon course because she was tired of waiting during the street closure. Runners and onlookers pounded on her car and shouted at her to stop.
British poet Joanna Pine claimed she needed to get to a writing workshop and was driving as slowly as she could. Not considering that she could have been shot as a terrorist driver plowing into pedestrians, Pine now admits that it was “a stupid thing” to do.
But she loves people!
Luckily Gomer Pyle and Barney Fife weren’t participating in the Plymouth half marathon.
Well done, Louis. Keep leading by example.
Mr. Jordan is the world’s most thoughtful Umbrella Man, displacing the now unemployed Michael Jackson sycophant.
The Louisville Forum asked former NBA player and Denver Nuggets general manager Dan Issel to offer his thoughts on the NBA2Lou project. I was asked to moderate and throw in my own comments about the potential of snaring an NBA team for the city of Louisville.
Naturally, the subject creates animated opinions from those who are opposed to adding professional sports. Some fear that it would harm the University of Louisville’s athletic pursuits and others worry that taxpayers will be on the hook for various concessions made for team owners.
Issel and his investors have the city’s best interests in mind. Bring it on.
The CJ’s Phillip M. Bailey live-Tweeted the forum. Great audience questions and general enthusiasm for the prospect of bringing the NBA to The Ville.

In spite of forecasters calling for a partly cloudy and pleasant Kentucky Derby day, the heavens opened and rain poured for fourteen hours on Churchill Downs.
No rain, no gain. The bettors’ favorite Justify sloshed around the track ahead of 19 other contenders to win the garland of roses and launch his campaign to become the next triple crown winner.

Actor Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas) made headlines a few months ago after threatening to kill Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein for allegedly derailing his daughter’s acting career. Weinstein faces a litany of allegations that he sexually abused, debased, and squelched the careers of women who rebuffed his sexual advances.
Paul Sorvino and his wife Dee Dee appeared on Great Day Live this morning for Friday’s Unbridled Eve gala.
Off the air, Sorvino told me that men praise him every day for validating that dads will go to any length to defend their daughters. We talked about Weinstein’s reign of terror and Sorvino reiterated that he would “kill that mother fucker” (Weinstein) if he had 5 minutes with him.
That’s what dads do.
In the above photo, I asked Sorvino to give me the death stare he used to intimidate Tom Cruise in the film The Firm. He said Cruise was so flustered by the menacing faces of Sorvino and actor Joe Viterelli (the Morolto brothers) that Cruise kept botching his lines. 🎬
Paul Sorvino and his wife Dee Dee are in Louisville for the Unbridled Eve gala on Kentucky Derby Eve.
The Sorvinos have a cookbook with “Pauly’s” favorite dishes. One of the auction items is a dinner prepared by Paul and chef friends for a group at the home of the founder of Angel’s Envy bourbon. Proceeds benefit Blessings in a Backpack.

Merrilee Ehrlich, a Miami area circuit court judge, went off on a defendant in a wheelchair. Social media exploded. The judge resigned.
As you were, people.
At a Michigan high school golf tournament last weekend, one foursome walked into something nearly as bad as a hornet’s nest.
Don’t mess with mama.
Forget eagles and birdies. Just move along.
