On his 74th birthday, Mick Jagger is still working. Gotta love his ability to evolve.
and another new one released this week
Meanwhile, in a dark place underground…
And then there’s this guy.
Joe B Hall, 1978 national championship coach of the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team, earned yet another honor. His hometown of Cynthiana installed a giant mural of the coach painted onto the side of the local Masonic building.
Naturally we had to talk on the radio about fishing, babysitting, working in tobacco fields, and small town fun. We never even got around to basketball. Enjoy.
The Beasman is a Kentucky legend and an American treasure.
Russia’s SU-35 (called Flanker-E here) is the most incredible aerobatic performer to date. Enjoy the ride.
For comparison, here is the F-35A, America’s most versatile military aircraft.
We’ve come along way, brother. Here’s the Wright Brothers Model B, produced between 1910-14.
Welcome to our compassionate city! We respect each other!”
Walsh Construction company has completed its work on the $2.3 billion Ohio River Bridges project. Back in early May, the company agreed to scrub away graffiti for 90 days. That window is about to expire. Cleanup duties now fall onto the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
Here are photos taken within the past 24 hours in the Spaghetti Junction area, around the adjacent skate park, and a few shots of defaced interstate signs.
Generous taxpayers built new infrastructure. Uninvited “artists” soiled the new infrastructure.
Who’s in charge here?
OPTICS: Louisville is an unclean cesspool. There are over 200 museums throughout the metro area where artists can display their genius.
Public property belongs to everyone. No individual may force feed their definition of art on the public at large without recourse.

email from a radio listener:
1) Poor images aside, these cameras are supposed to be monitored 24 X 7 by Metrosafe. Who is asleep at the wheel there?
2) Has anyone ever been caught tagging? If so, make a public example of them by assigning the perp to clean, repaint, whatever and let the media cover it widely to discourage others. Blur the face(s) if its a minor.
3) Some of these tags must take hours (waterfront a few months ago). How many calls were made to LMPD? Let Conrad explain why no one is ever caught.
4) Unless “Compassion” Fischer and “Excuse” Conrad take this type crime seriously, the new interchange will be covered in months. Bring both on your show and ask them what they are doing and plan to do to address the issue. Public pressure – you have the pulpit, sir.
***NOTE: Metrosafe informed me that they provide space to LMPD for its security system and the monitoring is the responsibility of the police department.

Beleaguered Louisville Metro Councilman Dan Johnson (D-21) has been asked to resign by his Democrat colleagues. He has until August 1st to resign or they say they will procedurally eject him from office.
Johnson was on my WHAS radio show yesterday where he maintained his innocence in multiple sexual harassment allegations made by female government workers. Johnson said that he doesn’t understand why this story is still reverberating one month after a councilwoman lodged a complaint against him.
When I asked Johnson if he will resign his office, he replied “No…I was elected by the 21st district to serve them for four years and I will do that until my time is up.”
Courier-Journal: Top 5 Quotes from the Dan Johnson radio interview
It was a grueling but candid interview. Johnson put no restrictions on any areas of questioning. He talked about each allegation in detail and summarily deflected each one. He claimed that touching Councilwoman Jessica Green’s buttocks was an accident, and that allegations of inappropriate behavior with a legislative aide and a woman on a chamber of commerce trip are incorrect.
When asked about his tendency to cite memory loss, Johnson claimed that he did not abuse alcohol and that he is not on medications or street drugs. As for concussions during his lifetime, Johnson gave a hazy reply indicating that there may be more information forthcoming. He did not elaborate further.
Now that the Metro Council Democrats have demanded his resignation, Johnson has agreed to return to my radio show on Monday, July 17 at 5 P.M.

After the July 12th interview, Metro Councilwoman Jessica Green texted me that she thought it was a fair interview, adding “I’m praying for him. He needs prayer and professional help.”
Greg Fischer, John Yarmuth, and Matt Bevin were on my radio show back-to-back-to-back today. The mayor and congressmen, both Democrats, discussed a variety of issues. The Republican governor had a significantly different strategy to solve societal problems.
AUDIO: Governor Matt Bevin on attacking the pension shortfall, bourbon tariffs, the Mike Pence visit, universal health care, handling haters on Twitter, and imitating Rambo at the Kentucky Speedway.
Now here is Rep. John Yarmuth on the Donald Trump Jr email chain with a Russian lawyer, Obamacare, media pursuit of Russia election interference, and renewed Democrat interest in universal health care.
Finally, here’s Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer on his six point plan to reduce violence.
Donnie & Marie opened their 1978 TV show with Steely Dan’s Reelin’ in the Years. It wasn’t Steely Dan but it was white bread America.
The Osmond family story is pretty compelling. Sometimes nice people win. Enjoy.
