...And Now For The Weather, and Other Dismal News.

It was 66 degrees in Louisville today. By Saturday it will be snowing. It will rain the entire time in between, your mailman will slip in the mud, your newspaper will be wet and your tarp(s) will probably fly off the roof of your home. If you are lucky, you will have enough storm debris in front of your home to contain the inevitable mudslide.

There are a lot of rotten moods out there right now, and I am a firm believer that this demon weather has contributed to all the hate-filled hearts in Louisville. Our mayor is a sap, our public school system has run amok and everyone with a marketable trade is either out of a job or on the bubble. There are more people on unemployment and food stamps than ever, yet the local paper seems content running weekly features on the Good Life That You Will Never Have, showcasing grand homes with "Media Rooms" bigger than your grandfathers farm.

The State Legislature is still in session, but there's not much going on. Just a mammoth display of hand-shaking and throat-clearing with the occasional nutty bill causing an uproar.

And if you are a University of Kentucky Basketball fan like me, you are truly desperate.

So, that covers weather, local news, politics and sports for today. Don't worry. The month of March is coming, and with it, the promise of spring. Keep the faith.
