Stumble. Bumble. Fumble. It's what we do. PHOTO OF THE YEAR: women's march, January 2017 -- Me too? Im guessing that's a NO. ALL-TIME CLASSIC BLOOPER FOR MY PILOT BUDDIES:
It was close for the first twelve minutes of the Kentucky vs. Louisville rivalry game. Tie score. Both teams missing too many shots. Then UK went on a tear in the second half, opening a 32 point lead. The final score was 90-61. All Wildcats all the time. No Pitino playing the villain role. With more NCAA punishment coming soon and no permanent school president, head basketball coach, or athletics director, how in the world will Louisville compete against top programs in the next five years? QB & JYB - @KyLaborSec Derrick Ramsey and Gov. John Y Brown Jr were elated with @KentuckyMBB blowout of @LouisvilleMBB Me? Nope.Now I worry about the next few years of competition
#BEATLOUISVILLE pic.twitter.com/XLOoVN1OmW— Patrick Towles (@patty_ice_8) December 29, 2017 Even on the day the University of Kentucky appears in a football bowl game, former players think about THE RIVALRY. The BASKETBALL rivalry. It's game day: Louisville vs. Kentucky in college basketball. The usual hate is there, but something else is missing. Polarizing figure Rick Pitino, who coached both teams over the past 30 years, has been fired. Now UK Coach John Calipari faces upstart UofL Coach David Padgett. It'll be fun but it won't be the same. Both coaches have stirred it up over the years. Calipari once declared that Kentucky was a rare situation because it had no major in-state rivalry. After a last second loss in 2015,
Of the hundreds of political people I've interviewed over 40 years in broadcasting, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin understands the value of radio more than any other. He knows that long form conversations give him instant, unedited contact with constituents as opposed to edited clips packaged through the prism of any given reporter. Bevin and I have a scheduled monthly chat - he calls them Talk Radio Tuesdays and appears on 4 or 5 shows in different areas of the state - and I am usually last on the clock. Because WHAS is in his home city, I often get in-studio interviews, a rarity for governors. We had a scheduled interview on December 12th. The text shows that he decided to make
Merry Christmas, everyone. Try to hold onto to the Christmas spirit every day. Love expands life. Rage corrodes life. Angry partisans vulgarize our culture. Daily profane online beatdowns of their perceived "enemies" are relentless, tiresome, and futile. No one has every read a profanity laced, acerbic demonization of some political figure and thought, "That f-word really enlightened me. I'm switching parties!" Online abuse is ubiquitous. People who don't like themselves rub temporary salve on their wounded souls by vilifying others. The more abusive they are, the less they're inclined to realize how deranged they are to the massive majority that finds joy in life. It's Christmas. Some way, somehow find your OFF switch and immerse yourself in
? Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell joined me on 840WHAS to talk the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act, Berea College's conundrum, Bernie Sanders, sunsets on middle class rates, Blue vs Red states, GOP squabbling, drain the swamp, ending Obamacare mandate, charitable donations, sports seat licenses (which are no longer deductible starting in 2018), more #USpolitics #KYpolitics ? Senator McConnell said he did not know about the tax bill's effect on claiming deductions for university sports PSL (personal seat licenses). My CPA was listening and texted the bad news for universities counting on robust sales of PSL opportunities. "Per my info, 80% deduction for amount paid for right to buy season tickets will go away in 2018. 2017 will

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin visited my WHAS Radio studio yesterday to discuss multiple allegations of wrongdoing by controversial conservative state representative Dan Johnson. The "pope" of Heart of Fire Church was accused of molesting a 17-year-old parishioner in 2012. Johnson met with media earlier in the day. Governor Bevin and I discussed his situation at length in this interview. About 24 hours later, Johnson would take his own life by shooting himself in the head in Bullitt County. Pastor Dan Johnson drove to a remote area and killed himself the next day after posting on Facebook that he was innocent. He alluded to PTSD issues and declared that he was now heading to his real home in Heaven. Bevin tweeted about
TOPS Louisville celebrates its first year of circulation in the city. The magazine has been a massive hit and the go to source for fine living. Many of the featured subjects recently gathered at Speed Museum for a group cover shot. Can you find my hot wife Mary George Meiners? Here's a complete guide to all of the cover subjects (numbered in the photo below).
Here's Kentucky Congressman Brett Guthrie on the wrangling between the House and Senate on a final tax reform bill. We talked about the value in dropping the corporate rate, the potential loss of deductions for middle class families, and Brett's limited praise for Bill Clinton and Jim Gray, the Democrat running against Congressman Andy Barr in District 6.
