Louisville, Kentucky is the best place I've ever lived. I love this place, but I think it's safe to say we have a really tough time getting things done.
On Wednesday, the Federal government approved a financial plan expected to save $1.5 billion on the bridges project. Great! But we've been talking about new bridges for over thirty years. We have a tough time getting things done.
We have an antiquated tax code that does not attract big businesses. Everyone knows it is broken but we can't seem to get it fixed.
Indiana and Ohio build casinos right across our borders and harvest billions of Kentucky dollars. Can't blame them, but we can't seem to muster any defense. We can't even get slots approved at our racetracks and we watch our status as the racehorse capital of the world slip away.
Ed Hart tried to resurrect Kentucky Kingdom but he and the state couldn't come to terms and the deal fell apart. The Koch family stepped in, but the Kochs and the state can't agree to terms either and the deal blows up. Whose fault? Who knows, but we have a tough time getting things done.
In my lifetime, Louisville was bigger than Indianapolis, Nashville and Atlanta. They're progressive cities. Louisville's not. We need to either get in the game, or pull up a chair on the porch and watch the world pass us by.
