Matt Damon can't commit to a sensible pronunciation of Louisville. On 30 Rock, no one on the production team reshot this scene where Damon says LOO-uh-ville. Hillbillies say LOO-uh-vul. People with self respect say LOUIE-ville. The city is named after King Louis XI. There is no King LOO-uh. Ville is vill. Villanova. Villain. The Ville. Stop being a poser. If you can muster the energy to correctly pronounce Taylorsville Road and Shelbyville Road then work a little harder to say Louisville with a shred of self respect. And now here are some bloopers from Between Two Ferns. Good night. Let yourself out.

Erin Calipari is the daughter of University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari. She regularly fights with people on Twitter. This one's a little stickier than others. Erin Calipari took offense to a social media post where Christi Mack, wife of University of Louisville basketball coach Chris Mack, applauded a post about supporting all of society, including police, during these tumultuous days of racial unrest. Erin Calipari deleted her clapback tweet less than one hour after posting it. Who in 2020 thinks it's OK to demand that a man put his wife in her place? Wut? Aren't you a Ph.D doing research at Vanderbilt? Did your husband say it was OK to go to college? Erin Calipari added this follow up: I’ve said this before
The current intellectual movement is "counting on the guilt-ridden, self-flagellating nature of traditional American progressives, who will not stand up for themselves, and will walk to the Razor voluntarily." https://t.co/MHXoAy9U5e— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) June 13, 2020 A free press is a sacred trust. We must protect its integrity instead of baking in bias and pretending to be objective. Diversity is good. Group think is not.

Michael Moore thinks American women underestimate White Male Rage. Managing White Male Rage is like the whole thing we're raised in America to DO.— Obelisk of Wokeness 🍩 (@EBlumberg11) June 14, 2020 2020 brought us the coronavirus pandemic, unprecedented unemployment, a near collapse of the American economy, and worldwide #BLM protests of police brutality that attracted riotous side actors. But white male rage...well, that's been here since Cain and Abel. The phrase found rejuvenated viability from a January SNL bit mocking the film JOKER.
📻 @RepJohnYarmuth reacts to new info in the #DavidMcAtee shooting, clarifying "defund the police", how #HeroesAct could boost equality, and do @BernieSanders & @AOC really help @Booker4KY in red Kentucky? @840WHAS audio https://t.co/oA29cYinqz #PoliceReform #BlackLivesMattter pic.twitter.com/HfDEcrgeUe— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) June 10, 2020 We learned today that a bullet from the Kentucky National Guard killed David "BBQ Man" McAtee during a law enforcement shutdown during curfew. McAtee had fired at least two shots from the 9 millimeter weapon that he pulled. Kentucky government officials say that McAtee fired first and was shot by either of the LMPD officers who returned fire along with national guard troops. A shot from @kentuckyguard killed #DavidMcAtee, not @LMPD officers, according to @GovAndyBeshear cabinet secretary Michael Brown.
Here's the thought process emerging from people who believe that social workers should handle the majority of police work. Read the thread. But so long as we’re talking about what the “defund the police” movement could mean in practice – in addition to cutting budgets – here are some ideas.— David Menschel (@davidminpdx) June 7, 2020 And, of course, don't let your racist privilege limit criminal opportunities for a marginalized perpetrator.

Following the police shootings of Breonna Taylor and David McAtee, Louisville has been reeling from passionate street protests against police brutality. Riots and looting sprang forth on the edges of the peaceful protests so law enforcement added National Guard troops by order of Governor Andy Beshear. The move only heightened tensions. Here are some of the most poignant leadership, legal, and prominent voices who shared a radio microphone with me to talk about solving Louisville's issues of inequality and cracked security. #Louisville metro council member Jessica Green on @LMPD shooting of #DavidMcAtee, protest rioting, small business concerns, the city's future, more 🎙️ @840WHAS audio https://t.co/HNdwo2oLdy #BreonnaTaylor #GeorgeFloyd #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/gm2xzUJLmz— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) June 2, 2020 This @nytimes video adds much more context

Today would have been Breonna Taylor's 27th birthday. She's dead. On March 13, LMPD officers shot her in her apartment after activating a no-knock warrant in search of someone who was not there. Breonna's boyfriend Kenneth Walker awoke from the police invasion and shot at what he thought were burglars. Police returned fire, wounding Walker and killing Taylor. Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets to honor Breonna in a movement launched following the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd. Four police officers have been arrested over Floyd's death but none of the Louisville officers have been charged in the killing of Breonna Taylor. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer appeared on the radio with me tonight to answer questions about the protests, Breonna's
