This line in Joe Gerth’s column from this weekend on fundraising in the gubernatorial race jumped out at us:
Beshear has angered large portions of the coal industry and at least one key road builder who might see a chance to exact their revenge on him in the 2011 election.
No, it’s not the “angered large portions of the coal industry” line. It’s “one key road builder”.
I assume that Joe Gerth believes in the legend of Leonard Lawson, passed down from generation to generation of journalists in Kentucky. As the legend has it, if you say Leonard Lawson’s name five times in print, your corpse winds up buried underneath asphalt on some nameless road in eastern Kentucky, never to be seen again.
