on: editor’s note – gov. bevin, the 140-character coward
Next, the Bevinator will say reading the LEO is a waste of money. When reminded it’s free, he will say, “That’s fake news.” —Tim Keith
Duh, why would Bevin want to trust the mainstream media to convey any message he might have? Joe Gerth and his left-wing cronies at The CJ beat him up in the press on a daily basis. Aaron also beats him up over nothing. Matt, don’t give in to these imbeciles. —Dick Wood

Why should a hotel commit to providing a grocery store where the market hasn’t encouraged one? The prices won’t be competitive. I’ve yet to visit an urban area that has a grocery located in a hotel. Downtown Chicago has scant few grocery stores considering the population. CVS and Walgreens abound, covering most of the sundry items required by locals and tourists.

Using the term “The South End” to refer to a tract of land that takes up 50 percent of Jefferson County is like talking about “the country of Africa.” Can we quit with this East End superiority already? —Sarah Crawford
On: Youth violence, The Secret Geography of Louisville
Thank you for this informative article … It is the first time I can remember reading anything of this depth and acuity on a subject that seems so difficult for the public and our government to address. —Judy Fisher Oetinger
