Elsewhere in this issue you’ll find some gentle, constructive criticism aimed at some of the loonier citizens who walk among us. So it seems only fitting to also recognize a few of the sane people in our midst. So often in our culture the delusional and depraved get most of our attention while sanity is … Continued

A tortured report

Serendipitous that the CIA torture report came out the week before LEO’s Louneyville, because the reaction has been nothing short of looney, and nothing less than shameful. A $40 million, 6,700 page report, which took more than five years to develop, and this is the debate our country is having?  The most disappointing revelation to … Continued

The feminism in pageantry

I believe that every female should participate in at least one pageant in her lifetime (particularly by her 18th birthday).   As someone that has competed successfully on local, state, national and international stages, I will explain why… The Feminist movement began because since our nation’s inception, women had been treated as second-class citizens.

The progressive war on Christmas

It is Christmas season and once again we are confronted with the intolerance of the radical left.

Taking Aim

A few months ago in my Editor’s Note, I was extremely critical of several people after a 9-year-old girl shot and killed her shooting instructor at a gun range outside of Las Vegas. My criticism included the girl’s parents, the operators of the gun range, as well as the instructor who was killed. While I … Continued

The crimes against Shaqquan Aaron

If the University of Louisville basketball team had not cut down the nets in Atlanta in 2013, this town would be storming the NCAA offices with torches and pitchforks right now. It had been over a quarter-century since U of L last won the NCAA Championship, so one year removed, we fans lack the sense … Continued

Going against the pros

“Kentucky has 10 potential NBA players. Well, the 76ers have 15 current NBA players. They would be the top-ranked team in college basketball. Although the 76ers are an awful NBA team, their flaws are magnified because they are playing against the best in the world. And over the past week, UK’s strengths have been magnified … Continued
