Since I mentioned the Legend of Candyman Leonard Lawson yesterday, I thought it was only fitting that I share this educational chart on Mr. Lawson’s crime family that a reader passed along:

Looks about right?

Also, I’m not going to bother telling you about my casket/cremation preference, because nobody’s ever going to find my body.

Joe Gerth believes in the legend of Candyman Leonard Lawson

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.

It all seems very silly. Or is it?

The least shocking news ever

August 9, 2008

Who would have ever thought that someone inducted into the KY Transportation Hall of Fame would be caught by the Feds buying off KY officials. SHOCKING.

Being in that Hall of Fame is like being inducted into the Mob Boss Hall of Fame.

Aftershocks SURE to come from this one…
