on attica scott: ‘fight the power’
Go get them, Attica! —David Cooper
Thank you for this great interview! Attica will be such a vital voice in Frankfort, and Louisville should be proud to have her in our, and Kentucky’s, corner. It’s easy to get frustrated by politics and government these days, but Attica proves that hard work, sincere leadership, and a willingness to speak up still count for a lot. I’m rooting for her. —Bailey Roese
on EDITOR’S NOTE: Bevin, Ouster-in-Chief
First of all, the Ark Park won a lawsuit against the previous administration for withholding the incentives … Second, in the irony of all ironies, he is finally taking action to save the pensions of the government employee unions that vote reliably Democrat, despite the Democrats not adequately funding their pensions for decades. I disagree with Bevin on that. He should have let their pension system go bankrupt.
on editor’s note: will work for health
“Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed.” Herman Melville, U.S. novelist and sailor (1819 – 1891).

on kyle meredith: when politics ruin music
What does rock & roll, or music for that matter, have to do with politics. Musicians are entertainers, some of them talented — not politicians. And neither are people who write about music or politics. —Richard Graef
Yet some of our prominent politicians were entertainers first. What qualifications are required for politics, Mr. Graef? What would disqualify writers? —Steven Ward

Tacoquest: Where to find the best tacos in Louisville
Considering we, as a country, consumed 4.5 billion of these, and have made Taco Tuesday an annoying memeable thing, like Sunday Funday, it’s inconceivable that there’s no guide available to find authentic, street-style tacos like what you might find in Texas, California and, most importantly, all points south toward the equator.
That’s where Welp! comes in. Welcome, my friends, to TACOQUEST!
