Friday rundown - zoning madness, wild rumors

- More zoning madness: Here's my take on the Metro Planning Commission's hearing yesterday. It was a mess.

- New rumors: Darden Restaurant group buys old Circuit City building on Dixie? Darden operates Red Lobster, Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, The Capital Grille, Bahama Breeze and Seasons 52 restaurants.

- Dept.of Please Stop Making Us Defend Your Stupid Decisions: President Obama has appointed William Daley as his Chief of Staff. Daley had been serving as Midwest chairman for JP Morgan Chase, and you know how I feel about those assholes.

- Mayor Greg Fischer's "Day of Service" is tomorrow, January 8. Here is a poster with info (.pdf).


  1. If the circuit city building has to be a corporate franchise I would liked to have seen a Books A Million or something move in there. We don't just eat in SW Louisville. There are people that read out here too.

  2. Sigh. That would have been a great location for a Fry's. But better a restaurant than an empty building, I suppose.

  3. The rent on the building must had been to high for another Peddler's Mall.

  4. god forbid putting a bookstore on dixie highway -__-
